I’ve seen enough: Winsome Sears (R) defeats Hala Ayala (D) in the Virginia lieutenant governor’s race. #VAGOV— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) November 3, 2021
I’ve seen enough: Jason Miyares (R) defeats Atty Gen. Mark Herring (D). #VAGOV— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) November 3, 2021
UPDATE: Youngkin wins. Sears wins. Republicans win both governor and lieutenant governor races. Mark Herring also goes down. Republican wins VA attorney general race too.
I’m pessimistic about Virginia.
I will be delighted though if I am proven wrong.
I expect Terry McAuliffe will win a narrow victory due to mail in ballots and early voting. I think too many people voted too early. I also think all the red counties will be counted early again, which will show Youngkin way ahead like Trump in 2020, and the blue counties will come in late.
