RICHMOND — Former Gov. George F. Allen unseated incumbent U.S. Sen. Charles S. Robb last night, ending the Democrat's 12-year tenure and leaving every statewide office in Virginia held by a Republican.

Early results showed Mr. Allen drawing the majority of the vote over Mr. Robb.

The GOP trend carried over to the House, too, where Virginia voters were set to elect a Republican to the seat vacated by a Democrat and filled two other seats vacated by Republicans with Republicans.

That would leave the state congressional delegation with six Republicans, four Democrats and one independent who will caucus with Republicans.
