Wittman, Brat Win, Warner Claims Victory, Amendment Passes
Republican incumbent Rob Wittman won the First District seat and Dave Brat won in District Seven for the U.S. House of Representatives.
In an 11:45 p.m. speech from his Arlington, Va., campaign gathering, incumbent Mark Warner (D) claimed victory in the U.S. Senate race. Ed Gillespie (R), speaking minutes later, was not conceding. The race is so close, Gillespie could ask for a recount.

Dave Brat (R) won with 60.92 percent of the vote. Jack Trammell (D) had 36.88 percent and James Carr (L) 2.09 percent.
