Republican Glen Sturtevant just declared victory here at his Glen Allen election night headquarters, thanking Powhatan voters for putting his campaign over the top Tuesday.
Although official results have not reached Richmond by 9:30 p.m., Powhatan is projected to have voted far and away for the Republican candidate. The votes now reaching the State Board of Elections are projected to surpass the gap Democratic opponent Dan Gecker created earlier in the evening.
The numbers haven't reached Richmond yet, but the unofficial tally is expected to put Sturtevant over the top. Republicans are beginning to celebrate control of the State Senate, roughly two hours after polls closed here.
Will post official numbers as soon as Virginia's Board of Elections verifies them.
