Health care played big role in Democratic win in Virginia

Virginia's hard-fought race was closely watched as a swing-state test of Trump's popularity and early indicator of the 2018 midterm elections

Democrat Ralph Northam has easilywon the Virginia governor's race, defeating Republican Ed Gillespie in a stinging rebuke to President Trump.

Trump is correct on the first point.

Democrats picked up at least 13 of the 17 seats they would need to retake the chamber for the first time in two decades.

The New Jersey governor's race was a Democratic blowout. This was actually a vote on hate.

Democrats on campus volunteered in multiple campaigns across the country. They didn't win the statehouse.

"Hopefully we can get to 51 and we won't have to struggle with power sharing quite that way", Toscano said, although the party did not believe that outcome was at all likely when the night began.

Two of those races are in Northern Virginia - outgoing Republican House Speaker Bill Howell's seat in Stafford and Fredericksburg, and Del. Voters on Tuesday were making a decision with all the moral and political weight of deciding whether to use the red or the blue guy in Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots. She ultimately voted for Northam.

Larry Roberts, who in the past advised former Virginia governor and now Sen. "If that pattern repeats itself in California, suburban Republicans should be concerned".

Tuesday's elections don't ensure health care will remain a winning issue for Democrats in 2018. Or the curse of the White House.

Specifically, Abramowitz said, in the 18 midterm elections since World War II, the presidents party has lost an average of 25 seats in the U.S. House.

And many political analysts caution against drawing overly broad conclusions about Tuesday's election results.

Northam, an Army veteran and pediatric neurologist, has lumped Gillespie in with the white supremacists who rallied in Charlottesville this summer in support of Confederate monuments. As the Supreme Court has explained, legislators "represent people, not trees or acres". "LOL", Tom Perez, the Democratic chair, tweeted in response, followed by the emoji for laughing and crying at once.

Several Democrats pointed to party unity as a powerful asset in Virginia. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton won Virginia in 2012 and 2016, respectively, and it has two "blue" U.S. senators. Was "resist" just a rallying cry with nothing to back it up? Last night, Democratic candidates for the state House of Delegates received nine percentage points more of the vote than Republicans, but the body ended up with a 50-50 split, in large part because of Republican gerrymandering efforts.

Virginia Democrats also elected Justin Fairfax as lieutenant governor - just the second African-American elected to statewide office since Reconstruction - and re-elected Mark Herring as attorney general.

The Republican Party is on the wrong side on this issue.

In Howell's 28th District, Republican Bob Thomas leads Democrat Joshua Cole by just 86 votes. "When you win, there's a cascade of goodwill", said Bay Area Democratic strategist Katie Merrill. But whom was he claiming to speak for?

Among those will be Danica Roem, who is transgender. Andrea Jenkins won a City Council seat in Minneapolis, and Tyler Titus won a school board race in Pennsylvania. The Legislature at Richmond has been firmly in GOP hands, but may be flipped to the Democrats. "I always felt that they took advantage of the working people and the working class, so it was a little difficult".
