Republicans increased their majority in the House of Representatives Tuesday with Randy Forbes' victory in Virginia's Fourth District.
The district has been hard to win for Republicans. Former President Bill Clinton twice won the district, as did former Democratic Senator Charles S. Robb, who lost to Republican George F. Allen last fall. But in that same election, President Bush carried the district.
Forbes replaces recently-deceased Rep. Norman Sisisky.Posted by wasylik at June 21, 2001 10:00 AM
