Polls Are Closed: Election Results Open Thread

The polls are now closed in the 26th House of Delegates district and the 27th House of Delegates district.  Please feel free to use this as an open thread, and let's hope for huge upset victories by Kai Degner and William P. "Bill" Brown.

UPDATE: Well, so much for the 27th district, where Roxann Robinson has won easily.  With 19 of 20 precincts reporting, it's Robinson 2,914 (71.59%) vs. Brown 1,156 (28.40%).

UPDATE #2: With 6 of 21 precincts reporting in the 26th district, it's Degner 2,041 (47.83%)-Wilt 1,991 (46.66%).

UPDATE #3: So much for the 26th district.  With 17 of 21 precincts reporting, it's Wilt 5,508 (64.09%)-Degner 2,714 (31.58%).  Bummer.

UPDATE #4: Ben Tribbett does what he does best, analyzing last night's election results.  The conclusion? In the 26th district, "In a best case, dream scenario- where Democrats turned out every single voter who showed up in the Obama-Clinton primary in the 26th District- they still fall over 2,000 votes short to the Republican candidate." And in the 27th, "Not only was this race winnable, but had Democrats been successful in even getting half of their primary voters back to the polls, they would have won in a landslide."  Click here to read more about why Democrats put resources into the 26th and not the 27th.

Vote Kai Degner, Vote William Brown!

Everyone who lives in the 26th (Harrisonburg, parts of Rockingham County) and 27th (Chesterfield County) House of Delegates districts, don't forget to vote today for Democrats Kai Degner and Bill Brown, respectively. Both of these contests are longshots in heavily Republican areas, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. As Bluto (John Belushi) asks in Animal House, "Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!...when the goin' gets tough...get going!"

So, get going everybody, down to the polls to vote for Kai Degner and Bill Brown!
