Marsden Elected to State Senate

Dave Marsden won the State Senate seat left vacant by Attorney General-Elect Ken Cuccinelli

A Northern Virginia voting district has a new state senator-elect.

Democrat Dave Marsden edged out Republican Steve Hunt in the 37th District, which runs from Springfield to Centreville and includes Burke, Fair Oaks, and Chantilly. With all of the precincts reporting, the State Board of Elections reported Tuesday night that Marsden had 11,943 votes, and Hunt received 11,626 votes.

The seat became open when Republican Ken Cuccinelli was elected Virginia's Attorney General in November.

This was considered an important election for both parties, because Democrats narrowly outnumber Republicans in the Virginia State Senate, and a win by the Republicans would put them closer to regaining control.
