Branscom, Craig win GOP Convass


Interim Commonwealth’s Attorney Eric Branscom took the Republican nomination for election to the job in the GOP Canvass Saturday, easily defeating Harrison Schroeder and Travis Epes.

Long-time Deputy Brian Craig won a tight race for Sheriff against Christiansburg police officer Doug Weddle 1359-1245.

Weddle, Schroeder and Epes have conceded.

Branscom took every district of the county, winning 1,640 votes to 684 for Schroeder and 243 for Epes.

Craig won three of the five districts — Indian Valley, Burks Fork and Little River — while Weddle took Courthose and Locust Grove by narrow margins.
