    33rd Senate District Democrats to select Herring-replacement nominee Saturday

    Local Democrats will hold a firehouse primary, or unassembled caucus, Nov. 23 to elect their nominee to replace state Sen. Mark Herring (D-33rd) in the General Assembly should Herring maintain his advantage and eventually win the historically close 2013 attorney general race.

    Two candidates will be on the Democrats' ballot: Jennifer Wexton, a Leesburg attorney, and Sheila Olem, a member of Herndon Town Council.

    Voting in the primary is open to all Democrats residing in the 33rd Senate District, as long as he or she is a registered voter willing to sign a certificate declaring his or herself a Democrat.

    The following locations will host the caucus: Herndon Community Center, Meeting Room Three at 814 Ferndale Ave., Herndon from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Cascades Library, Conference Room B, 21030 Whitfield Place, Potomac Falls from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and the group study room at the Rust Library, 380 Old Waterford Road NW, Leesburg from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    The 33rd District Senate seat will come vacant if Herring is certified as the winner of the Nov. 5 attorney general election. As it currently stands, according to the Virginia Board of Elections, the Democrat defeated Republican state Sen. Mark Obenshain by 164 votes out of more than 2.2 million cast.

    No Republicans have declared a candidacy for the 33rd District seat.

    The Board of Elections will certify the results Nov. 25. It appears likely the losing candidate will call for a recount after the results are finalized.
