Democrat Ralph Northam leads Republican Ed Gillespie 47-38 percent in the Virginia Governor’s race in a Quinnipiac University Poll released this afternoon.

Peter Brown, Assistant Poll Director says, “a close race with Lt. Governor Ralph Northam holding a six point lead over former National Republican Chairman Ed Gillespie. Six points is a nice lead, but not overwhelming.”

And he says, Gillespie is doing well, despite President Trumps negative numbers in Virginia.
