Voters line up at Crozet Library for the Republican primary for State Delegate.

Republican primary voters waited in a lengthy but convivial queue in the sunshine at the Crozet library on Saturday, April 27, to vote for one of three contenders to succeed state delegate Steven Landes: Albemarle County farmer and B&B owner Richard Fox, Augusta County Supervisor Marshall Pattie, and Rockingham County businessman Chris Runion. Runion won the contest by a vote of 42% to 34% (Pattie) and 24% (Fox), with an unusually high voter turnout for an off-year party primary. 

Runion will face Democrat activist Jennifer Kitchen in November.
