Ed Gillespie narrowly wins GOP primary for Governor

Ed Gillespie narrowly wins GOP primary for Governor

In his victory speech, Gillespie tried to play peacemaker and asked Stewart supporters to get behind him for the general election. Are we ready to keep Virginia blue?.

"Virginia is going to be the match that sparks a progressive wildfire that spreads across the country".

Meanwhile, Democrats were on pace to have record turnout in their primary for a non-presidential year contest, according to the University of Virginia's Center for Politics' Geoffrey Skelley.

Perriello joined the race late and quickly earned the support of national figures like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Polling leading into Tuesday had Perriello, who jumped in to the race in January, even with Northam, who locked down the entire statewide Democratic apparatus more than a year ago.

He credited his own campaign with a "great victory" for forcing issues of economic inequality in the political conversation. Addressing his supporters at the State Theatre, Perriello said: "Together we helped elevate mainstream ideas that should have been there all along", citing his support for a $15 minimum wage as an example.

"I see this as the midterm of the midterms", said Felty, who voted for Trump and remains steadfast in his support.

Northam sought to stoke Democrats' anger toward Trump, calling the president a "narcissistic maniac" in statewide ads.

"We really don't know how it's going to turn out tonight". "I'm glad the voters are actually coming out to the polls on a primary, that's just as important as a November election". Northam, a pediatric neurologist and Army veteran, emphasized his pragmatic approach and ability to work with Republicans.

Dozens of women have come forward to say he drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges. The jury got the case Monday, and first declared itself deadlocked Thursday on the three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

The biggest surprise was on the Republican side.

Prince William County Republicans promised a unified ticket in the months ahead.

Pemberton Township native Ed Gillespie has won the Republican nomination in Virginia's race for governor.

"We want you to be part of our effort", Gillespie said.

Stewart has run a controversial campaign, pledging to fight the removal of Virginia's Confederate memorials and to crackdown on illegal immigration, and pledging his loyalty to Trump and his policies.

Many voters said they were inspired to come out because of events in Washington. But there is a catch: You can only vote in one primary, either the Democratic primary or the Republican primary.

Virginia Democratic candidate for governor, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, with his wife Pam, left, and son Weston, celebrate his victory in the Democratic primary during an election party in Crystal City, Va., Tuesday, June 13, 2017. His reply: "I said, 'Damn right I am!'"

But looking at the data available, 2017 proved to be a banner year for Democrats and possibly a sign of Trump's waining popularity.

The race for governor, especially, has focused almost as much on reaction to events in Washington as to policy concerns within the state.

Beyonce still made a number of red carpet appearances while carrying the twins and documented her pregnancy via social media. Some fans clamoring for details on the twins took Obama's aside as a hint that the babies might be girls.

"We want you to be part of our effort", Gillespie said, adding that Virginia can not afford another four years with a Democrat as governor.

Northam will be competing against Ed Gillespie, who won the Republican gubernatorial primary, for the November general election. Stewart, with his prominent connections to the campaign, ran as a vocal Trump backer.

Northam will now face former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie in the race for the governor's seat. He cast himself as an unapologetic liberal and front-line warrior in the resistance to Trump and has been endorsed by Sen. Those with more moderate views with the GOP stayed home.

Stewart also gained attention during the primary campaign for his defense of Confederate monuments. "I will not campaign for him".

On the Democratic side, it was Perriello who was trying to tap into voter passion.

Polls open at 6 a.m.

That created a challenge for Republican candidates, because the party's base still supports the president, said Rozell, the George Mason dean.

Primary night in Virginia was supposed to show a competitive race amongst Democratic - and a blowout amongst Republican - gubernatorial candidates, but voters had a different idea. Gillespie, the longtime GOP operative in Northern Virginia, lost the governor's race four years ago to Terry McAuliffe.
