Democratic Del. Convirs-Fowler reelected to Virginia House

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Democratic Del. Kelly Convirs-Fowler has been reelected to the Virginia House in one of three races that had remained uncalled more than a week after the election.

The Associated Press on Wednesday called the 21st District race for Convirs-Fowler. She withstood a strong challenge from Republican Tanya Gould, a human trafficking survivor and community advocate.

The victory puts the total number of seats won by Democrats at 48. Republicans have won 50 seats and hold narrow leads in two other races that remain uncalled.

Convirs-Fowler is a former elementary school teacher. She was first elected in 2017 by defeating a Republican who had held the seat for eight years.
