    Republicans Annihilate Democrats in Virginia Election Sweep – By Kate Plummer (Newsweek) / Jan 10, 2024

    Republicans scored massive victories in elections held in Virginia on Tuesday, returning two GOP politicians to local legislature following the departure of the incumbents.

    While it has leaned to Democrats in recent elections, Virginia is seen as an important battleground state ahead of the 2024 election, with Republicans winning in the latest gubernatorial election in 2021 and political commentators labeling it a competitive purple state.

    Tammy Mulchi defeated Democrat Tina Wyatt-Younger by 63.9 percent to 36.1 percent of the vote to win the 9th state Senate District in Southside. She will succeed state Sen. Frank Ruff, who is retiring after being diagnosed with cancer, Cardinal News reported.

    “In Richmond, I am ready to get to work for our rural communities, family farmers, and southern Virginia,” Mulchi said in a statement. “I know I have big shoes to fill with Sen. Ruff retiring, but I am ready to get to work.”
