On August 19th,  there were three special elections in Virginia.  The Democrats, as expected, were successful in keeping both seats they had in the House of Delegates.  Joe Lindsey (D-Norfolk) easily won the 90th District seat held by Algie Howell for over a decade and Rip Sullivan (D-Arlington) handily defeated his Republican opponent in the 48th District which was formerly held by Bob Brink.  Both are expected to be seated during the Special Session scheduled for mid-September in Richmond.
