Bill Bolling Re-Elected Lt. Governor of Virginia

November 3, 2009

Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling has been elected to a second term, defeating former state finance secretary Jody Wagner.

Unofficial returns from Tuesday's election show Bolling easily turned back Wagner, who worked for the last two Democratic governors.

Bolling is the first lieutenant governor to run for re-election since Don Beyer in 1993. He is a former state senator from Hanover County and an insurance executive.

Wagner served as secretary of finance under Gov. Tim Kaine and state treasurer under former Gov. Mark Warner. She owns a gourmet popcorn shop in Virginia Beach.

The lieutenant governor is a part-time, $36,000-a-year job with two duties: presiding over the Senate and succeeding the governor.
