Check out the following visual by VPAP, which shows the Virginia State Senate districts won by Ralph Northam and Ed Gillespie last Tuesday. The results: 24 Northam-won districts to 16 Gillespie-won districts. Those Northam-won districts includes several currently held by Republicans, and several where Northam won huge (e.g., bye bye Frank Wagner, Dick Black and Glen Sturtevant; maybe time to “spend some more time with your family” or something? LOL): District 8 (Bill DeSteph) — Northam won 49.8%-49.0%; District 12 (Siobhan Dunnavant) — Northam won 51.5%-47.2%; District 7 (Frank Wagner) – Northam won 53.6%-45.1%, District 13 (Dick Black) — Northam won 55.2%-43.7%, and District 10 (Glen Sturtevant) — Northam won 57.7%-41.0%.

    Now I just hope my Senate District 14 can muster enough blue votes to flip that seat blue, provided a strong contender comes out to challenge John Cosgrove. It’ll be pretty tough considering Gillespie prevailed by a big margin in that district, but I’m still holding out some hope that we get a strong contender in 2 years.

    By my reading of this map Ralph Northam also narrowly won Bryce Reeves’ district as well…

    • Looks like Gillespie edged out Northam there, 49.7%-49.1%.
