Sally Hudson wins 57th District primary

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Virginia's House of Delegates is poised to have a new representative for the 57th district.

Sally Hudson won Tuesday's Democratic primary election, beating Charlottesville City Councilor Kathy Galvin.

Hudson beat Galvin by nearly 3,000 votes. She was clear though that the work doesn't end here, and thanked her team for getting her to this point.

Hudson says change is coming to Richmond and she is looking forward to being a part of it.

"There is so much work ahead for Democrats in Virginia," said Hudson. "We're going to give every ounce of effort we have this summer and fall, so the Democrats can finally get to govern in Richmond."

Currently, Hudson is running unopposed in the largely democratic 57th District, but there is still time for an independent to challenge her in the fall.

Several other races were also on primary ballots around Central Virginia.

Incumbent state Senator Emmett Hanger defeated Tina Frietas in the 24th District, and incumbent Senator Bryce Reeves won against Rich Breeden for the 17th District. Reeves will now go on to face Democrat Amy Laufer, who defeated Ben Hixon for that nomination.

In the 20th House of Delegates District, John Avoli beat Dave Bourne for the Republican nomination.

In Albemarle County, Chief Deputy Chan Bryant was nominated to run for Albemarle County Sheriff, beating Patrick Estes and Bea LaPisto Kirtley defeated Jerrod Smith to earn the nomination for the Rivanna District seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

In Charlottesville, Michael Payne, Sena Magill and Lloyd Snook were selected as the Democratic nominees for three open seats on the Charlottesville City Council. Former Councilor Bob Fenwick and Biran Pinkston were defeated.
