FAIRFAX -- This evening, Senate Democratic Leader Dick Saslaw (D-Fairfax) and Senate Democratic Caucus Chair Mamie Locke (D-Hampton) released the following joint statement congratulating Karen Keys-Gamarra on her victory in today's special election for the Fairfax County School Board seat vacated earlier this year by Jeanette Hough. 
“On behalf of the ​Virginia Senate Democrat​ic Caucus, we would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Karen Keys-Gamarra on her ​election to the Fairfax County School Board. Between Karen’s victory today and Jacqueline Smith’s election as Prince William County Clerk of Court ​in​ April ​ -- seats both previously held by Republicans --​  ​it is clear that the momentum is on Democrats' side heading into November. We intend to take this momentum all the way to our next round of elections in 2019."
