Democrat Ralph Northam will defeat Republican Ed Gillespie in Virginia’s gubernatorial race, Fox News projects.

Early returns show a tight gubernatorial race between Republican Ed Gillespie and Democrat Ralph Northam in Virginia, where conservatives are hoping for an upset and liberals want to notch their first major win after a string of losses since Donald Trump was elected president.

With 48 percent of precincts reporting, Northam has 51 percent to Gillespie’s 48 percent. It is too early to project a winner in the state, where the Fox News Voter Analysis also shows a close race.

Meanwhile, polls have closed in New Jersey, where voters are deciding who will succeed outgoing Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who is term-limited after eight years in office and has seen his approval numbers take a drastic hit.

    Both these states are democratic states and the democrats would have been elected any ways. The democratic party and Soros a communist billionaire spent millions to ensure a democrat win while the republican party barely spent enough to say they had a guy running in both states. Yes, there are communist billionaires who use their money to buy communism. Look at communist countries, the members of the party make the money off of corruption and the top communists shopped at the store only for them and take vacations in resorts just for the top commies while the little guy stands in bread and milk lines and gets to take their vacations on community farms harvesting the crop. Virginia and New Jersey are states whose voters hate children. They allow homosexuals to teach homosexual sex in their schools and now want little girls to put up with boys claiming they are trans genders in public school bathrooms. Adults in these states don’t protect their children especially girls. Shades of Islam thinking creeping into these adult minds concerning little girls.

    It was a liberal seat anyway so nothing gained. Gillespie is not a conservative so had he won his voting would have followed McConnell’s rino agenda anyway.

  • McFerguson says:

    The upset never happened! And Laura Ingraham is right, one can’t go half-way in for Trump and expect the Trump base to go all in for you. That was what Gillespie was trying to do. Gillespie is a long time GOP establishment team member who’s soft on ILLEGAL immigration and the other tough issues that move Trump voters. He didn’t want Trump campaigning for him but was willing to take his endorsement. Gillespie’s a political mixture of Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan – a GOP RHINO, who identifies as a conservative, as long as the going doesn’t get too tough.

    Trump wasted no time throwing his fellow republican under the bus. I guess when Trump fails someone must pay and it isn’t Trump. The magic Trump touch, if there ever was one, is gone. Trump didn’t carry the swing states by much and swinging them the other way isn’t going to be that hard if Trump keeps being Trump. Any true republican can’t stand Trump and the damage he has done to the party.Next year should be very interesting.

      Still got your head up your liberal ass I see. Why do keep posting your bull shit on this site, go to some liberal left wing site where you’ll be more welcome. You criticize Trump no matter what he does. Because he’s a layman in political terms, you belittle him. Just because he’s not a “silver tongued” politician and a member of the “ruling class” you think he damaged the Republican Party. Got news for you ass hole, YOU”RE THE ONE DAMAGING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. You’re too dumb to know that though. You’re and ass hole!

      1. bobnstuff says:

        Trump is not a conservative, not even a real republican so what does your support say about you? The confederate flag is the flag of losers, like many of Trumps supporters. I’m sorry that the Gov. of VA call Trumps names that you don’t understand the meaning of but they are in fact the truth.

      There have been 4 special elections since Trumps unprecedented defeat of shoe in candidate Clinton and each was touted in the press as a “mandate against trump” until the Democrat lost. Then it was reported as “just a Republican holding on to a Republican seat”. Why is this different? A Democrat held on to a seat held by a Democrat. As for President Trump “throwing Gillespie under the bus”, should he just have blamed it on the Chinese tampering with the election? Would that have made you feel better? You speak of next year, we will see what we will see. it will be then that the Republicans will need him and you will see him in campaign mode. He “Trumped” you once, and will again.

    All this anti Trump BS is the reason a communist billionaire supported anti American liar was elected gov. Is ridicules. The ignorant Republican Party elites through support behind an anti Trump candidate upset the Trump supporters who wouldn’t vote for this rhino.

    1. Navy Bob says:

      I was listening to the current Gov. of VA speaking last evening. He stated that they did not want “Trump’s brand of hate” in the Commonwealth. This is rich, since his Candidate’s first TV ad called the sitting President a “narcissist” and a “maniac”, then ended the campaign by having a surrogate group put out a ad showing a supporter of his opponent running down immigrant children in a pick up flying the Confederate flag. I guess this is the brand of hate the Governor wanted.

        Virginia got what they deserve. More of the same left nonsense. Losers!

      You do know you can’t be both a communist and a billionaire.
