Sturtevant defeats Chase in District 12 GOP primary
Amanda Chase says she is not conceding yet
CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - Former state Sen. Glen Sturtevant defeated incumbent Amanda Chase and Tina Ramirez in Tuesday’s 12th District GOP primary election.
Sturtevant won with 39% of the vote.
He served as senator from 2016 to 2020 and decided to run again for the Senate seat this year.
Sturtevant touts himself as a common sense conservative who will cut taxes, support police, and offer school choice if given another opportunity.
“Chesterfield is my home, Colonial Heights is so much like the place where I grew up,” Sturtevant said. “There are just so many good people who care about their communities, and their families, they want the state government to work for them. I’m just very blessed to live in a place like Chesterfield and have the chance to represent Chesterfield and Colonial Heights.”
Incumbent Amanda Chase spoke with NBC12 earlier in the evening, who said having three people in this race made it interesting.
She called herself a disruptor of the political establishment and was happy to be the people’s voice.
“I’m so proud of our voters for getting out and they know how important elections are and how much of a difference that can make for our state and for our community,” Chase said.
Chase did go to social media Tuesday night to say she is not conceding and more will be said, possibly on Wednesday.
Senate District 12 encompasses parts of western Chesterfield County and Colonial Heights.
