Hanger Wins 24th District Republican Primary

June 12, 2007

With 100% of the vote in, incumbent Emmett Hanger, receiving 53% of the vote, has defeated challenger Scott Sayre who received 47% of the vote. Voter turnout was surprisingly high with nearly 13% of registered voters showing up.

Issac Wood, a political analyst at UVa, says that Hanger has an advantage in November as the incumbent and will more than likely keep his seat in the Senate.

Wood predicts that Democrats may spend more money in November to oppose him in the election. The 24th District covers several counties including Greene and part of Albemarle.
