Del. Rosalyn Dance unofficial winner in State Senate primary


newspaperThe Democratic Party of Virginia held an unassembled caucus today to determine its candidate for the special State Senate election to be held on November 4, 2014 to fill the remaining term of former Senator Henry Marsh.

According to an unofficial canvass of results conducted by the party, Delegate Rosalyn R. Dance held an advantage over her competitors Delegate Delores L. McQuinn, former Richmond Mayor R.C. “Rudy” McCollum, Jr., and Gerry J. Rawlinson. The results will be certified in an official canvass of results to be conducted on Tuesday, August 12, 2014.

Nomination papers for candidates need to be filed with the Virginia Department of Elections by 5:00 pm on Friday, August 15, 2014.

The unofficial results are as follows: 1,725 for Roslyn Dance; 1,375 for Delores McQuinn; 592 for Rudy McCollum; 108 for Gerry Rawlinson; and 156 uncounted provisional ballots for a total of 3,956 voters.

After the unofficial results were tabulated, Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman Dwight Jones released the following statement:

“We’d like to congratulate all the candidates on a well-run election. We’d also like to thank all the Democratic Party members, activists, volunteers, and most importantly voters for participating in today’s caucus. We completed this step of the process with minimal incident and we will continue to take the utmost precautions as we conduct an official canvass of the results. While we still have a ways to go in certifying the results, we’d like to congratulate Delegate Dance and look forward to electing another Democrat to continue the legacy of Senator Henry Marsh in the State Senate.”
