STERLING, Va. (AP) - Democrats will hold a state-run primary next year in their race to unseat Republican Barbara Comstock from a northern Virginia congressional district. The 10th Congressional District is widely considered vulnerable after this month's elections, in which Democrats swept statewide office and picked up numerous legislative seats. The local congressional committee voted Saturday to hold a state-run primary, rather than a convention or firehouse primary, to nominate a candidate for the 2018 race.

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - A 34-year-old man is facing multiple charges after police say he took photos of a college student in a restroom on the Virginia Tech campus. The Roanoke Times reported Friday that Aldron Adams of Pulaski is charged with filming a non-consenting nude person, drug possession and fleeing from law enforcement. According to court records, a student using the restroom in Tech's McComas Hall on Nov. 8 called police after he noticed a hand reaching under the stall with a phone in a glittery pink case.

NEW KENT, Va. (AP) - A Richmond man has been arrested after police say he approached 130 mph on a Virginia highway trying to elude a state trooper. Virginia State Police say the trooper attempted to pull over 33-year-old Derrell Keith Williams on eastbound Interstate-64 in New Kent County about 1:30 a.m. Saturday after seeing him swerve across the center line. When troopers activated their siren, they say Williams sped off in a black Lincoln, accelerating to 130 mph and turning off his headlights.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Incoming in-state freshmen at the College of William and Mary will face a nearly 7 percent tuition hike in the fall of 2018. The Williamsburg school announced Friday that the new tuition rate for in-state students entering next fall will be $17,434. That's a 6.5 percent increase from this year. The increase does not affect undergrads already enrolled at the college. Since 2013, the school has frozen tuition for returning students at the rates they paid as incoming freshmen.
