Dan Schmitt defeats Danny Plaugher for Henrico County's Brookland District seat

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) -- Republican Dan Schmitt defeated Danny Plaugher in Tuesday's special election for Henrico County's Brookland District seat.

Schmitt, who won roughly 54 percent of the votes to Plaugher's 46 percent, is the owner of RMC events and the President of the Glen Allen Youth Athletic Association.

Schmitt will replace Courtney Lynch, who was filling in after longtime Supervisor Dick Glover died.

Schmitt thanked his supporters on Facebook Wednesday afternoon:

THANK YOU Brookland! On behalf of Sharon, Taylor, Carter, and Dan, a huge thank you for placing your trust in Dan Schmitt as your next Brookland District Supervisor. He is already hard at work to deliver on campaign promises for ALL of Brookland. Let's now begin the work to make Brookland better, together!  -- Dan Schmitt
