Rep. Hurt Wins Re-election in Virginia's 5th District

November 6, 2012

Gen. John Douglass (D) has officially conceded Virginia's 5th District Congressional race to incumbent Rep. Robert Hurt (R).

Douglass' campaign communications director issued a statement to the media shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday. In it he said: "Earlier tonight General Douglass called to congratulate Congressman Hurt on a hard fought race that has apparently earned him a second chance to choose good over greed by taking action to stop dangerous uranium mining. We are all so grateful to everyone who supported General Douglass along the way. Our campaign to help Virginia families will now continue through the good people of the 5th District."

With 91 percent of precincts reporting, Hurt leads 167,971 (56.6%) to 123,854 (41.7%).
