Democrat Wins Race for Virginia Governor

WASHINGTON – The Democratic Party’s candidate for Governor of the US state of Virginia, Ralph Northam, defeated Republican Ed Gillespie, according to results from the Virginia Department of Elections published on Tuesday night.

With 99.14 percent of precincts reporting, Northam had secured 53.53 percent of the vote, while Gillespie could only garner 45.28 percent.

“Tonight we proved that we’re stronger when we value and fight for one another,” Northam said on Twitter after his win.

US President Donald Trump, who had supported Gillespie, criticized him for not fully embracing him during the race.

“Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday evening.

Elsewhere, another hotly contested gubernatorial election in New Jersey saw Democrats post an important victory, with Phil Murphy defeating Kim Guadagno. Republican Chris Christie was not eligible to run due to term limits.

With 71 percent of ballots counted, Murphy had won 55.6 percent, while Guadagno had secured 42.5 percent.

The results were a welcome boost to the Democratic Party, which had lost four congressional elections to Republican candidates since Donald Trump’s election last year.

Despite the defeats, Trump remained defiant.

“Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!” Trump tweeted.
