Congressional election results across Virginia

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A highlight of a few races across the state.

In the fourth Congressional district, Republican Randy Forbes defeated Democrat Challenger Wynn Legrow, while Democratic Congressman "Bobby" Scott is going back for his 10th term in the third district, with 70 percent of the vote.

Democrat Krystal Ball was not successful in the first Congressional district. You may remember all the national attention she attracted when those racy college photos surfaced a few weeks ago, but all that publicity did not translate into votes.

Incumbent Republican "Rob" Whittman easily wins this race, and a major upset in the ninth Congressional district: 14-term Democratic Congressman, Rick Boucher was defeated by Republican Morgan Griffith --a major victory for the GOP here in Virginia.
