Hello ATS,

I know some on this site won't like this news but Ralph Northam wins the race for Virginia's new governor. Northam wins with 51.7% of the vote to Gillespie's 47.5%.

What does this mean for the coming years for Trump's Republicans? Is this a sign of things to come for the GOP?

Posting from a cellphone so I'm short of the VC usual bells and whistles.

Nothing probably.

Virginia is loaded with regular Democrat government workers.

Majority wins.

Maybe but we shall see. I think the Democrats took New Jersey also.

Northern Virginia is about as blue as it gets, so no surprise there. What is a surprise is how close the vote was.

I don't think the GOP is as infatuated with Trump as they once were. A Trump endorsement might work against the Republicans as it did in Virginia.

Ha-ha! Yeah, I posted before I realized what auto-correct had done to change Northam to Northampton. I tried fix it before anyone noticed. Oh, well....

I mean the state has been going blue for some time so it's not exactly news. Bigger news is that Dem's failed to win with a larger margin imo.

Yes, it was close and it's been that way the whole time. I think Gillespie was even ahead at one point.

No prob..
I actually googled it and it actually gave results for Ralph Northampton LT. Gov of Virginia.

So I was confused for a second.

Yeah, the presidential election gets more and more like a storyline from General Hospital or Young and the Restless everyday.

Considering Northam was originally up by double digits and only squeaked out a win I wouldn't pop the champagne corks just yet. The states the elections are in were won by Democrats and the states in question went to Clinton in the general.

I was more interested in the percentage difference, not the outcome per say. Virginia went blue in 2016 so this is not a surprise.

Clinton took VA by 5 points, Northam took it by 3 (last I checked). That's more interesting to me.

Phil Murhpy also won in New Jersey. Transgender Democrat Danica Roem defeated 26 year incumbent Bob Marshall to join the Virginia legislature.
