Both seats remain in Democratic control
RICHMOND, VA—The Virginia House Democratic Caucus celebrates Candi King and Angelia Williams Graves’ victories in the House of Delegates special elections held today.
Delegate-elect King will now represent Virginia’s House District 2, the seat recently vacated by former Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy, and Delegate-elect Williams Graves replaces former Delegate Joe Lindsey in House District 90. Both women will serve in the Virginia House of Delegates in the 2021 Regular Legislative Session, which begins January 13.
House Democratic Caucus Executive Director Jaime Reimers released the following statement in response:
“Candi King and Angelia Williams Graves were great candidates who ran excellent campaigns in an incredibly tough situation. We are not only proud of the hard work these amazing women have done, but also what they will bring as members of the House Democratic Caucus with their commitment to helping Virginia’s families.
“Tonight’s victory proves that Virginian voters want candidates who will work to move the Commonwealth forward. Candi King and Angelia Williams Graves exemplified those values on the campaign trail and will put their vision to good use as members of the House of Delegates.”
