5 Fast Facts You Need to Know — Ralph Northam's Family

Republican Ed Gillespie addresses a crowd at a get-out-the-vote rally in Williamsburg over the weekend

Decisive Democratic wins for governor in New Jersey and Virginia, not to mention the Democratic victories for lieutenant governor and attorney general, are a clear sign of the electorate's disquiet with Trump's low-road Twitter presidency.

Democrat Ralph Northam has won the Virginia governor's race, scoring the first big electoral victory of the Donald Trump era by defeating a candidate who ran hard on Trump-like culture war issues. And the party gained several seats in the 100-member House of Delegates, putting Republicans under threat of possibly losing control of the state legislature. Largely on the strength of an unexpected surge in turnout, Northam won easily. Democrats, in short, have a chance to reshape Virginia's political landscape.

New Jersey Democratic Sen.

Democrats in Virginia also will have greater leverage when drawing new congressional and legislative boundaries during the next redistricting. Here are my quick thoughts.

The last time Democrats picked up more than five seats was 1975, according to Toscano. And Trump himself on Tuesday night demonstrated once again that he feels no personal loyalty to fellow Republicans. And while I don't have comprehensive results on down-ballot races, there do seem to have been Democratic gains all over the place in local government.

"Trumpism without Trump" is just a euphemism for the politics of white identity-for campaigns tuned to white racism and designed to stoke white racial resentment.

In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin.

Democrats were gleeful at Northam's victory party.

Despite the criticism, Gillespie did, in more ways than one, embrace what Trump stands for, even if he didn't welcome Trump into the state to rally voters on his behalf. He once broke a tie in the state Senate to block a ban on sanctuary cities in the commonwealth, but days before the election announced he'd ban sanctuary cities in the state.

But after Tuesday's loss, Trump suggested that Gillespie hurt himself by not more closely aligning himself with the president. The 26-year-old recent graduate is a web designer. But instead of a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly, Gillespie transformed from a mainstream Republican into a Trump clone complete with racist dog whistles and more. "I like the policies, that's the only reason", she said.

Well, Bannon was right about one thing, Gillespie did embrace Trump's agenda.

"For Republicans to continue winning elections, we have to elect pro-Trump conservative Republicans who are willing to take on the establishment of both parties", said Williams.

Four weeks ago, Gillespie trailed by about six points in the RealClearPolitics average.

"The Republican Party needs more diversity - more Latinos, more blacks and more young people", said Mario Leon, 70, a satellite systems dealer from Henrico who is of Cuban descent.

"We will not succumb to the politics of fear", Booker declared. Trump is deeply unpopular, tangled by scandal and investigation.

In political terms, the off-year elections from Virginia to Washington gave landmark victories to Democrats. He called his former opponent in the hard-fought race "a good man", adding that he wishes him nothing but the best. Gillespie tried as much as he could to downplay his connection to Trump.

Think of the message that Trump's sent to Republicans.
