Democrats come close to retaking Virginia House

See how different groups are voting in the governor's race between Ralph Northam, Ed Gillespie and Cliff Hyra, and how their support compares with support for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Virginia exit poll, conducted by Edison Media Research for the National Election Pool, The Washington Post and other media organizations. Presenting himself as a governor "for all Virginians", he stressed small-government economic principles and tax cuts, his 20-plus policy proposals and his support for criminal justice reforms that put him at odds with tough-on-crime lawmakers in his own party. Someone in the Gillespie campaign actually thought it would be a good idea to campaign with Condoleezza Rice - who, for all her merits, is a relic of the George W. Bush administration.

This means real things for real people. As Northam tried to keep the focus on Trump and paint Gillespie as a Trump acolyte, Gillespie avoided talking about the president whenever possible. And with the governor's mansion, they have veto power over redistricting.

In New Jersey, Democrats repeated that feat.

The resounding victories marked the Republicans' most significant day of defeat in the young Trump presidency and a rebuke to the president himself as his party eyes a suddenly more threatening mid-term election season next year. Democrats have won every statewide election since 2009 and now have won four out of the last five gubernatorial contests. I voted for Donald Trump. This is a victory not only for the people of Virginia, but also for the health of our country's political norms. Northam's victory was remarkably comfortable. Mark Warner in 2014. "We will move forward", Murphy said in his own victory speech, invoking Trump by name as he looked headed to a double digit win.

What makes this transformation so stark is that before his primary campaign against Stewart - a "mini-Trump" who channeled his anti-immigrant and pro-confederate statues philosophy - Gillespie, a former Republican National committee chairman and lobbyist, had, as far back as 2006, criticized Republicans who had spewed anti-immigrant views. "If Republicans choose to run on the divisive Trump playbook in 2018, they will be rejected by voters". "They are part of our history". He almost won, falling just a few thousand votes behind Gillespie.

In Virginia's hard-fought contest, Democratic Ralph Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie.

When it appeared Gillespie might actually win, key Trump allies were quick to claim credit, via Stewart. In the comments reacting to the Richmond Times-Dispatch's endorsement of Gillespie, one person wrote, "If the RTD thinks he is a wise choice, I now understand why the RTD is losing readership". It's as strong as it's ever been.

They likely will face opponents who aren't walking that kind of tightrope and who can count on hatred of Trump to bring out their supporters in droves. Shlost by 12 points.

PFAW spokespeople are available to speak with the press. Several Republicans have announced plans to retire next year instead of seeking re-election, and Gillespie loss may prompt more such announcements. Trump is deeply unpopular, tangled by scandal and investigation. But overall, newspaper endorsements have had mixed results in influencing voters or forecasting election outcomes.

The Trumpian line will be that a Trumpian candidate could have inspired support the way Trump did last year.
