Joe Morrissey wins Democratic primary

CBS 6 reports:

Joe Morrissey won the Democratic primary in State Senate District 16 which covers portions of Chesterfield, Prince George, and the City of Richmond, and all of Petersburg, Hopewell, and Dinwiddie County. Morrissey, a controversial and bombastic figure in Richmond, who previously served as Richmond Commonwealth’s Attorney and a state delegate defeated the incumbent Democratic Senator Dance who has represented the district since 2014. The winner of the primary will likely not face a challenger in November since Republicans have yet to offer a nominee in the General Election.

Picture from old CHPN article back in the day.

I remember when he was running in 2016 and had pony rides and bounce houses and a block party, and I was like “politicians still do stuff like that?” Evidently, yes they do.

This is a clear example of voter apathy and low turnout. So many people were not even aware there was an election today and how much was riding on it-including me! Fortunately thanks to Marna’s post I was able to vote-but there were tumbleweeds in my polling place.

Good things come to those that wait for their moment. Joe has always been a fighter and never gives up. People have short memories but Joe Morrissey always stood with the underdogm

The past is just that -the past. Nothing Joe did harmed me nor any of his detractors.
Going forward, hopefully he’ll stand for gun-control, health care, and issues that affect his young family and ours.

Dance actually carried the Richmond City vote so don’t @ me with that ‘Come on RVA’ nonsense.

https://results.elections.virginia.gov/vaelections/2019%20June%20Democratic%20Primary/Site/Member%20Senate%20of%20Virginia%20(016).html

Also tho, Joe actually campaigned. He talked to people, knocked on doors, got people out to vote. Also clearly did something right in Petersburg where he took 72% of the vote.

If this many of yall are so distraught over him winning the primary, were you out there fighting for votes?

Chris Harnish
Guest

Nearly us as well! And Dance woefully under ran. Sadly, Joe’s a better campaigner.

Chris Harnish

Way to go Democrats, you just elected another morally corrupt white male to office! I for one cannot vote for the guy. No one with a daughter under the age the age of 18 should!

Diana Burkett

I just threw up a bit in my mouth. This is what happens when people do not vote…

I’m disgusted! Why can’t Dance run as an independent? I just cannot stomach the thought of him representing me anywhere. I will say I did see plenty of his signs, plus I’ve never seen Dance, except going to a private event in the neighborhood. Nothing door to door like he is known for.

Felice Ann

Megan Hebert really? And you have a nasty mouth. U are no better than how you feel about him. You nasty. Foul mouth.
