The 2017 Virginia Primary Day winners, local and statewide
by Alix Bryan

Tuesday's elections marked the first time in the commonwealth's history that both parties held contests on the same day. There were some surprises on Primary Day.

Ed Gillespie's tight victory over Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chair Corey Stewart came as a major surprise. Observers initially expected it to be an easy win for Gillespie, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee. Frank Wagner, a senator in the commonwealth's legislature, trailed in third place.

Meanwhile, Lt. Governor Ralph Northam's win capped off fierce competition on the Democratic side, where he faced off against former Congressman Tom Perriello. And turnout in the Democratic primary far outpaced the Republican side.

In a statement congratulating Northam, outgoing Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe linked the Republican field to President Donald Trump.

Another upset occurred in the Richmond Sheriff's race, when C.T. Woody lost to challenger Antoinette Irving. This was the third time Irving had campaigned aginst Woody -- who has served since 2006. She won by just under a thousand votes.
