All 11 U.S. House Members in Va. Re-elected

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia's U.S. House incumbents have all won re-election.
 
Results of Tuesday's election leave Republicans with an 8-3 advantage over Democrats in the state's House of Representatives delegation.
 
The sweep by incumbents stands in stark contrast to the last two congressional elections in Virginia. In 2008, Democrats rode Barack Obama's coattails to pick up three seats and gain a one-seat edge. In the midterm election two years later, Republicans gained three seats to re-establish their 8-3 advantage.
 
In Tuesday's most closely watched races, Republican Rep. Scott Rigell turned back Democrat Paul Hirschbiel Jr. in the Hampton Roads 2nd District and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor beat Democrat Wayne Powell in the 7th District, which includes the Richmond area.
