In Virginia’s First Congressional District, Vangie Williams has won the primary election and will run against Republican incumbent Rob Wittman in November.

Williams got 39.81 percent of the vote, with 98.4 precints reporting.

Two other Democrats, Edwin Santana and John Suddarth, were also running.

The district is a sprawling one, including all or part of 19 counties, with Fredericksburg and the Northern Neck among its features. Wittman has served since 2007.
