CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Joe Platania is the democratic nominee for Charlottesville's next commonwealth's attorney. Tuesday's primary election ended with Platania having 62% of the votes over Jeffrey Fogel. 

Platania currently serves as the assistant commonwealth's attorney. There are no candidates filed to run against him in November. 

Platania gave an acceptance speech following his victory. His boss and current commonwealth's attorney Dave Chapman was in the audience.

“I'm really just so grateful and humbled by the opportunity,” said Platania. 

He said that he is glad that the election is over so that he can focus on his job at hand and serving the voters as the city's prosecutor.
