NORFOLK, Va. - Jackie Glass has won the Democratic nomination for the open 89th House of Delegates seat, the chair of the Norfolk City Democratic Committee confirmed to News 3.

The Norfolk City Democratic Committee held a COVID-19 protocol drive-thru unassembled caucus, also known as a firehouse primary, Tuesday to choose the Democratic candidate for the seat.

Glass bested three candidates vying for the nomination: Alicia E. Smith and Danté Walston.

Current Del. Jay Jones announced he would vacate the seat to focus on being a father.

Also Tuesday, the 89th Legislative District Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia selected its nominee for the special election.

Norfolk Republicans convened Tuesday and selected Giovanni Dolmo, a 39-year-old Honduran immigrant and father of two, to be its nominee for the January 11, 2022, special election in the race.
