Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam is now Governor-elect. “We’re back by popular demand.”
At George Mason University Tuesday night (11/7), Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam celebrated a nearly 9-point victory over former Republican National Committee chair Ed Gillespie.
Northam, who won big in densely populated urban areas, said the task now turns to closing wounds of division in the Commonwealth. “Whether you voted for me or not, we are all Virginians as we move forward.”
With more than 2 million ballots casts, the victory marks the second consecutive time Virginians have voted for a Democratic state-wide slate.
