Republicans Keep Control of the State Senate

Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) congratulated Ben Chafin on his election to the Virginia Senate Tuesday:

“Congratulations to Ben and his entire team for a well-deserved and hard-fought victory in today’s special election. During his short time in the House of Delegates, Ben has proven to be a thoughtful and capable legislator who can solve problems for the people of Southwest Virginia. While we will miss him in the House, it is fortunate that a man with such a steadfast commitment to conservative principles will serve as the decisive twenty-first vote in the Virginia Senate. Thank you to all of the election workers and volunteers for their time and energy today; it is greatly appreciated. Again, congratulations to Ben, his family, and his campaign team, as well as Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment and the Senate Republican caucus, on today's victory.”
