Virginia Republicans are on the verge of a clean sweep of not only the statewide offices of governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general but also control of the House of Delegates.
That reality cannot sit well for Democrats as they peer toward the 2022 midterms.
President Joe Biden won Virginia over former President Donald Trump by 10 percentage points just a year ago.
At the very top of the red wave in the Old Dominion was the governor’s race, where Glenn Youngkin upset former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
THANK YOU, VIRGINIA!— Glenn Youngkin (@GlennYoungkin) November 3, 2021
It’s a new day in the Commonwealth, and I am profoundly humbled by the trust placed on me.

Next was U.S. Marine veteran Winsome Sears, who took the lieutenant governor’s race, becoming the first African-American woman elected to statewide office in the commonwealth’s history.
