The Democrats have picked up a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates in a special election. From the AP:
RICHMOND, Va. - Former Del. Albert C. Pollard Jr. won back his old House seat in a special election Tuesday.
Pollard, D-Lancaster County, won 63 percent of the vote over Republican Lee Anne Washington for the seat Republican Rob Wittman vacated with his election to Congress in December.
The victory further narrows the GOP House majority, giving the Democrats 45 seats to 53 held by Republicans and two by independents who side with the GOP.
Virginia's legislators aren't on the ballot this fall, but the entire House of Delegates is up for reelection in 2009.
