I might add a few more graphs later, showing some key House of Delegates districts as well, but for now, check these out (below). Note that for both governor and Lt. Governor, Democrats’ first-place finishers demolished Republicans’ first-place finishers — by over 70,000 votes for governor (Northam over Gillespie) and by over 100,000 (!) votes for Lt. Governor (Fairfax over Vogel).  Also worth noting is that Democrats’ second-place finishers trounced the Republicans’ first-place finishers — by 79k votes for governor (Perriello over Gillespie) and by nearly 50k votes for LG (Platt over Vogel). Let’s keep this up through November and not only win a smashing victory for the three statewide offices, but also carry in a slew of House of Delegates Democratic nominees to victory!

    Let’s not take this for granted though. We all need to turn out in November regardless of how far ahead we might seem.

    • Agreed…..only the efforts used during the past six months will duplicate the results of this past Tuesday. As the GOP has not established any unit between their winning and losing candidates, I’ve seen the desire to “stay the course”, do what is right for the community, and continue to build towards improvement of the Commonwealth.
