Democrat Ralph Northam has won Virginia's race for governor.
Early unofficial results show Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie on Tuesday.
Virginia's hard-fought race was closely watched as a swing-state test of President Donald Trump's popularity. Northam, a pediatric neurologist and the state's lieutenant governor, repeatedly tried to tie Gillespie to the president during months of divisive campaigning overshadowed by racial overtones and attack ads.
Northam's victory was in large part due to a surge in anti-Trump energy since the president took office. Democrats said they had record levels of enthusiasm heading into the race.
Gillespie kept Trump at a distance throughout the campaign but tried to rally the president's supporters with hard-edge ads focused on illegal immigration and preserving Confederate statues.

Virginia has become East Detroit
Margin of fraud strikes again.
Damn, just damn
My sentiments exactly.
Not surprising since he ran against Never Trumper Gillespie, who’s already lost a statewide race in Virginia. Karl Rove’s corrupt friend now can stay home and hopefully in 4 years Republicans can run a real and loyal candidate.
This will make up for Jon Ossoff.
Virginia is flipped up.
Not as bad as the rats will make it out t be. Hope the final result is close. Virginia is now officially blue.
Who cares. Gillespie was a swamp rat and the Governor only serves a single 4-year term anyway.
We need to run Trump Republicans.
We need Ed in the Senate....or at least the house...a voting position.
“Northam’s victory was in large part due to a surge in anti-Trump energy since the president took office.”
That is stated as established fact when there is no basis for it at all
Trump Republicans = Trumplicans?
remember- were it not for the GOPe, they would’ve been running for the seat held by ken cucinelli...
We need Establishment Ed to take his RINO arse home and leave this to the MAGA supporters.
No! Saw Fox News Called it. ugh!
No we don’t need Ed in the house. To vote for what? Amnesty? Because he would. Gillespie was never a good candidate. RINO to the Core
