Richmond, Va, 8 November 2011: Speaking on behalf of the Virginia Senate Republican Caucus, Senate Republican Leader Thomas K. Norment, Jr. congratulated Senator William M. “Bill” Stanley, Jr. and Senator-elect Bryce Reeves on their victories over Democrat incumbent Senators Reynolds and Houck, respectively, with all of the precincts reporting.
“Senator Stanley ran a fantastic campaign, and the voters of Southside and Southwest have responded to his message of creating jobs and promoting business,” declared Norment. “Senator-elect Reeves also performed impressively, running a successful campaign that remained focused on the significant differences between himself and the longtime incumbent on the issue of taxes.
“Thanks to the victories of Senator Stanley and Senator-elect Reeves, the Senate Republicans are now the majority party in the Senate of Virginia. As we await the final numbers in some of the other races that remain outstanding, the Senate Republican Caucus is grateful to Bill and to Bryce for their impressive performances at the polls.”
