A New Sheriff's in Town

While the State Senate races got the most attention in Virginia Tuesday, there were some other notable elections.

For the first time since 1996, a new sheriff's in town in Loudoun County. Republican Mike Chapman took the job away from Steve Simpson, an independent who was seeking his fifth term as sheriff.

In Spotsylvania County voters were apparently looking for change. All three incumbent supervisors lost their races.

  • Livingston Supervisor T.C. Waddy, an independent, had held his seat since 2000. He was defeated by Republican challenger Ann Heidig.
  • Chancellor Supervisor Hap Connors, also an independent, lost his seat to Republican Tim McLaughlin. The race is tight enough for Connors to request a recount, however.
  •  Courtland Supervisor Jerry Logan, a Republican, was defeated by David Ross -- a challenger from his own party.

In Fairfax County, Braddock Supervisor John Cook held onto his job. The Republican fought off a challenge from Democrat Janet Oleszek.
