Vienna Votes: Vienna Picks Obama, Kaine, Connolly
Vienna voters continue blue streak, following district, state and nation in Virginia contests and the race for president.
Vienna voters stayed true to their history this Election Day, leaning left in their choices for the presidential, senatorial and congressional offices Tuesday.
Results from 15 Vienna precincts show voters at those locations favored President Barack Obama (D) over Mitt Romney (R) with 57.7 percent of the vote, Tim Kaine (D) over fellow former Gov. George Allen (R) with 60.14 percent in the U.S. Senate race, and U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) over Chris Perkins (R) and four other challengers with 56.9 percent for the 11th congressional district seat.
The final results mirror those on a district, state and national level, with all three of those Democratic candidates elected to office. However, Vienna voters chose Obama by a much wider margin than the rest of the state and country, as both yielded an Obama win by a margin of less than 2 percentage points.
While Kaine narrowly defeated Allen by about 4 percent statewide, Vienna elected him with more than 60 percent of their vote.
But in the 11th congressional race, Vienna voters chose Connolly with a little less enthusiasm. The district voted him in with more than 60 percent of the vote, while Vienna offered just under 57 percent of theirs.
