Republicans Win Special Election, Hold House of Delegates 27th District

Republicans won yesterday's special election to fill a vacancy in the House of Delegates. The seat was held by Republican Sam Nixon. The following is a statement from state party Chairman Pat Mullins:

"I want to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Roxann Robinson on her victory in 27th House District," Mullins said. "Dr. Robinson's victory ensures that the people of the Chesterfield County will continue to be represented by a Delegate who believes in common-sense, conservative solutions."

"Former Delegate Sam Nixon served the people of Chesterfield County well, reflecting in Capitol Square the common sense conservatism that the people of Central Virginia live every day," he said. "Governor McDonnell recognized Sam's talents when he appointed him to be the Commonwealth's Chief Information Officer - a position that will allow him bring his widely-recognized expertise to the whole of Virginia."

"Today's election shows that 27th District voters are still hungry for the real change and positive solutions that Sam Nixon and Roxann Robinson represent. Dr. Robinson will make a fantastic delegate and will represent the 27th District with honor," Mullins said. "I am certain that her career will be long and distinguished."

Republicans also won a special election in the 26th district. Tony Wilt easily won a three way race there.
