Democrat Chap Petersen appeared at a celebratory fund raiser for the Blue Dominion PAC, a Democratic political action committee, in Fairfax, Wednesday, Nov. 15. He said he hasn't yet decided whether to run for Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis' (R-34) seat in the state Senate next year, but the crowd cheered him on during a short speech as if he already won. The room full of happy Democrats were still celebrating the Nov. 7 victories in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. They cheered Petersen on when he said the Democrats could take over the Virginia General Assembly next year as well.
