Herring is Va. Democratic attorney general nominee
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- State Sen. Mark Herring has won the Democratic nomination for Virginia attorney general over political newcomer Justin Fairfax.
The 51-year-old Herring captured nearly 52 percent of the vote in Tuesday's statewide primary. He now takes on a fellow state senator, Republican Mark Obenshain of Harrisonburg, in the Nov. 5 election.
Herring took his state Senate seat from Loudoun County in 2006 and was re-elected two years ago by nine percentage points over Republican Patricia Phillips. He was a member of the county's board of supervisors before being elected to the Senate. He is the principal attorney in his own law firm in Leesburg.
