Political newcomer Margaret Franklin on Tuesday night upended Prince William County Supervisor Frank Principi’s bid for a fourth term.
Franklin mounted a successful Democratic primary challenge in the Woodbridge District, collecting 1,202 votes to Principi’s 1,005, according to unofficial results.
Interviewed Tuesday afternoon, Franklin said that if she won, it would be because of a desire for change.
“If I win, I think it will be because people are just ready to do something different,” Franklin said.
She said Woodbridge needs boosting, and she would do that.
