In a nice appetizer before the big game, oft-blogged about Chap Petersen ’90 easily won his election against incumbent Jeannemarie Devolites Davis, wife of congressman and Amherst alum Tom Davis, who also served as her political patron. Congrats!

As Virginia continues to trend more and more democratic, the sky is the limit for Chap. Next on deck: Mark Udall, who in 2008 is poised to become the only Eph in the United States Senate. Williams should try to get Chap and Mark as speakers at a campus political forum, now that Chap’s election is secured, and before Mark’s election campaign begins to monopolize his time.
