Results Thread: 6th Senate District Democratic Caucus


Today’s Democratic caucus to nominate a candidate to replace Lt. Governor-elect Ralph Northam in the 6th Virginia Senate district closed at 2 pm today. The candidates are Del. Lynwood Lewis, former delegate Paula Miller, and Ralph Northam’s LG Campaign Treasurer Andria McClellan. Please feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the district and the results. I’ll update with whatever I can find. Also note that this district went 57% for Barack Obama and 58% for Tim Kaine last year.

UPDATE 4:31 pm: Not that this will change the winner, but I’m hearing some serious disagreement about the total in Accomack, possibly off by 1,000 or so? (e.g., Ben Tribbett tweets, {“While Lewis won this election, here’s another example of inability to correctly count votes- seems unlikely reported result is right”). We’ll see, but in the end Lewis wins handily, regardless.

UPDATE 4:01 pm: According to this spreadsheet, the 100th House of Delegates district, which Lynwood Lewis has represented, went 55% for both Barack Obama and Tim Kaine last year. Of course, that doesn’t mean it will be that way in a special election early next year. We’ll see.

FINAL TOTAL: Lynwood Lewis 2,658 (55%); Paula Miller 1,292 (27%); Andria McClellan 929 (19%), Landslide for Lewis, basically…not even close.

*@notlarrysabato (3:37 pm) – “Norfolk results:  Miller 1173, Lewis 234, McClellan 778.  McClellan plays spoiler in Lewis’s win.”

*@notlarrysabato (3:25 pm) – “Lynwood will have about a 1,500 vote lead going into Norfolk.  It actually could be close if Miller pulls 75% there and he gets almost 0.”

*@vpaige (3:24 pm) – “Northhampton Hampton Inn: McC 5, Miller 7, Lewis 349…Northampton totals: McClellan 29, Miller 21, Lewis 731”

*@notlarrysabato (3:09 pm) – “Source inside Norfolk counting room says Miller has won Norfolk, Lewis a distant 3rd, but McClellan pulls enough to ensure Lewis victory…Projecting Lynwood Lewis as the Democratic nominee for @RalphNortham seat now.”

*@notlarrysabato (3:02 pm) – “Painter in, Lewis 210, McClellan 6, Miller 3.” The totals are now Lewis 975, Miller 94, McClellan 103.

*‏@notlarrysabato (2:51 pm) – “Shore still coming in, with Norfolk also out: Lewis 765, Miller 91, McClellan 97.  (5 of 11 reporting)”

*‏@vpaige – “NH: Eastville:  Lewis 173, Mcclellan 6, Miller 6”

*@notlarrysabato  – “Norfolk total updated to 2238.  With 3 of 11 polls in (7 on shore, 1 in Norfolk left to report) Lewis 383, Miller 77, McClellan 73.”

*@vpaige – “1 precint in Northampton: Lewis 209, McClellan 18, Miller 8”

*@vpaige – “Mathews: Lewis 136, Miller 48, McClellan 53”

*@notlarrysabato – “Bloxom on shore first poll in- Lewis 244, Miller 6, McClellan 2”

*@notlarrysabato – “Turnout counts (not sure these were all at 2 pm, need to see):  Norfolk 2,111, Accomack 840, Northampton 775, Matthews 238, VA Beach 44”

*‏@notlarrysabato (Ben Tribbett) – “If Lewis didn’t break through in Beach, hes going to be squashed in Norfolk. But will McClellan take enough votes from Miller 2 elect Lewis?…Remember Lewis will probably win 90% of votes on the shore.”

*‏@notlarrysabato (Ben Tribbett)  – “Virginia Beach reports first.  Paula Miller 23, Andria McClellan 18, Lynwood Lewis 3.”

*‏@notlarrysabato (Ben Tribbett)  – “Remember- with Onzlee Ware (D-Roanoke) resigning, a Lewis victory means every House of Delegates committee goes from 15R-7D to 16R-6D”

*‏@notlarrysabato (Ben Tribbett) – “Around 2,000 voters in Norfolk- mostly for Paula Miller- but big turnout on Eastern Shore where Dems put eight polls to help Lynwood Lewis”
