Republicans are celebrating this week’s special election results from Southwest Virginia. The GOP has an absolute majority in the State Senate after it picked up a seat that a Democrat vacated in early June. James City County Republican Tommy Norment (pictured) is glad his party holds 21 of the 40 seats in the Virginia Senate.
