One dozen votes separate a Richmond City Council race

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

We saw some pretty close results in the local Richmond elections Tuesday night, including some major upsets on the Richmond City Council.

The tightest race for a city council seat goes to District I, where incumbent Bruce Tyler and Jonathan Baliles were neck and neck all night.

Baliles reportedly pulled forward, but it was very close, with about 24 votes more going in to Wednesday morning.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Baliles gave a cautious victory speech, while Tyler predicts there could be a recount. According to the biography on his website, Baliles has lived in the first district for about 15 years. He is a former city employee. Tyler was running for his third term in this election.

In District II with results from all districts in, incumbent Charles Samuels will serve another term. It was a very close race between Samuels and Charlie Diradour. Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones will also serve another term after he pulled away with at least 70% of the vote.

In the ninth district, incumbent Doug Conner lost to challenger Michelle Mosby. An upset occurred in the fifth district when challenger Parker Agelasto unseated incumbent Marty Jewell.

These results are coming in from the State Board of Elections websites which last updated around 3:40 Wednesday morning.
