Undeterred by a snowstorm, thousands of voters in parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties trudged to the polls to cast ballots in a special election that is likely to determine whether Democrats or Republicans control the state Senate.
After months of squeaker elections and recounts, the race for control of Virginia’s state Senate is coming down to a three-way special election in a northern Virginia swing district.
A special election will be held Jan. 21 to fill the seat of state Sen. Mark Herring, who was elected attorney general.
Virginia Del. Joe May hopes to continue his legislative career in the state Senate.
