ROANOKE, VA (WWBT) - Democrat Chris Hurst unseated Republican incumbent Joseph Yost for the 12th District seat.
That district covers parts of the Roanoke area. Hurst is the former WDBJ7 TV anchor-turned candidate. His girlfriend - reporter Alison Parker - along with cameraman Adam Ward were shot and killed on live television.
Hurst became a big proponent of gun control because of that shooting.
