Lamont Bagby
DEC. 23, 11 A.M. – Henrico County School Board member Lamont Bagby fell several votes short in his attempt to win the Democratic nomination to seek the 74th District House of Delegates seat in a Jan. 13 special election.

Bagby lost by eight votes – 24 to 16 – in a firehouse primary to Charles City resident Kevin Sullivan, a former International Brotherhood of Teamsters political coordinator. Former 74th District representative Floyd Miles finished third.

Only about 100 Democrats in the district (which spans portions of Henrico and Richmond and all of Charles City County) were eligible to vote – those who are active members of the Democratic committees in one of the three localities – and only a few more than 40 turned out. > Read more.
