A new survey shows Joe Morrissey has a "solid lead" to become Richmond's next mayor. The survey was conducted by the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.
Morrissey, a former prosecutor and state delegate, has a 12 percent lead over city economic development leader Jack Berry.
Here are the results of the survey:
- Joe Morrissey - 28 percent
- Jack Berry - 16 percent
- Michelle Mosby - 10 percent
- Jon Baliles - 9 percent
- Levar Stoney - 7 percent
- Bruce Tyler - 4 percent
- Lawrence Williams and Bobby Junes - less than 1 percent
- Undecided - 24 percent
Richmond's election rules require the winner to win in at least five of the nine city council districts. If that does not happen on Nov. 8, then the two candidates receiving the highest vote totals city-wide will go into a runoff election to be held on Dec. 20.
