York County General District Vacancy

Since Judge Renne announced his retirement, two candidates have expressed interest in the vacancy setting up a battle to determine whether the job will go to York Count deputy commonwealth's attorney Ben Hahn, or Williamsburg/James City County commonwealth's attorney Mike McGinty. Typically, the local bar representative would receive the appointment meaning that Hahn would be favored, but many believe that McGinty is favored by Tommy Norment.
