UPDATE: Democratic Delegate Rodney Willett is the projected winner in his race against Republican Riley Shaia.
"The people of Henrico made it clear tonight that they want a Delegate in Richmond that is pragmatic and works across the aisle to get things done. That was what our campaign was about and that is what I look forward to continuing to do in the House of Delegates," he said in a statement. "I am looking forward to getting back to Richmond on behalf of the people of Henrico.”
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Delegate Rodney Willett, the Democratic candidate, looks to hold onto his seat in the House of Delegates for a third term, where he's represented the same general area since 2020 after the "blue wave" election of 2019.
The Republican nominee is Riley Shaia, who is a fitness professional and physical therapist.
The district favors Democrats based on the past several statewide election results but not by a large margin, according to VPAP.
Willett holds the fundraising edge, but both candidates have pulled more than $100,000.
