The newest poll of the Richmond Mayoral contest by the Richmond Association of Realtors has the race closing a little. Joe Morrissey still leads with 29% overall and is tops in 6 districts, with Jack Berry climbing up to 25% and claiming 3 districts (1st, 2nd, 4th).
Morrissey has a “statistically significant” lead in the 7th District at 44%, trailed by Berry at 16% and Levar Stoney at 13%.
To win the mayoral position in November, a candidate must win in 5 of the 9 districts. If no candidate claims 5 districts, a run-off election will take place in December between the 2 candidates with the top number of overall votes.
