There was a lot of storm and fury over the legislative elections which took place yesterday. Millions of dollars was spent on TV ads about gun control and $17 tolls. In the end, none of it mattered.
There were no surprises. Each party generally held on to the seats which they drew for themselves in 2011. The real drama of the evening ended at 9 p.m., when Powhatan County came through with an unbelievable 5,000 vote margin for Glen Sturtevant (R-Richmond) who won the critical open seat. That sealed the Senate result and basically concluded the one statewide media story.
