Rigby appears headed to victory

In just 7 days, Norfolk attorney William Riiska convinced thousands of voters to write in his name for state representative in the 63rd District.
But it won't be enough to beat the only candidate whose name appeared on the ballot, political newcomer John Rigby, a Colebrook Republican.
Rigby has beaten Riiska in Winchester, which accounts for about 40 percent of the population of the district, 2,438 to 1,079.
Riiska filed to run as a write-in after incumbent Rep. George Wilber resigned with only two weeks to go before the election in the wake of a sex abuse allegations coverup scandal.
