So far, he’s gotten a majority in every precinct!

8:48 p.m.: Either way, I’m calling this (which I could have done at 7:00 p.m. — or a month ago); meet the new Delegate for the 99th District, Albert Pollard:

Thanks to the voters of the 99th District for not electing that fear-mongering demagogue George Lee Anne Washington!

Looks like Robby Wittman found a great replacement for himself!

    Ms Washington was definitely the better candidate. Pollard won more because of name recognition than any platform he represents. Hopefully the voters will make a better choice in Nov 09.

  4. No, Ms. Washington was a lying, fear-mongering, demagogue.
