Northam Wins Virginia Democratic Primary For Governor As GOP Race Remains Tight

Republican on of his Board of Supervisors endorsed Gillespie but won Prince William County with 60% of the vote.

Yet Stewart very almost knocked off Gillespie anyway, falling just 4,300 votes short to come within about 1 percent of the failed 2014 Senate candidate - in all Gillespie took home 43.7 percent of the vote compared to Stewart's 42.5 percent, while state Sen.

A third Republican candidate, Frank Wagner, got 50,387 votes (13.8 percent).

Gillespie, 55, of Fairfax County, has tried to avoid appearing either too critical or too supportive of Trump, a task that could become more hard in a general-election campaign targeting a broader audience of potential voters.

Vogel, who amassed a big fundraising lead, has promised to put "principle over party" and focus on the economy; Reeves has touted his conservative credentials.

But many Democrats voted pragmatically, wanting to choose someone with the most time in state government.

"Vowing to work with Perriello's supporters, Northam said", We're all in this together", the Washington Post reported.

But first, Perriello praised Northam for winning a "great victory, and offered him my full and unequivocal support". The Democrats have moved way too far to the left - too far left for a state like Virginia.

"There is one word you will never hear from me, and that's unity", Stewart said in his campaign. Bernie Sanders, promising to stand up to both President Donald Trump and the entrenched business interests that dominate state politics.

Mr. Perriello became the latest Bern victim, notching another loss for the senator from Vermont who electrified Democratic voters past year but who has struggled to turn his movement into a winning electoral campaign.

What makes Gillespie's close shave terrifying to Republicans everywhere is that Stewart ran a campaign based on cultural hyper-conservatism (especially an aggressive defense of Confederate monuments) and loyalty to Donald Trump.

Alun Wyn to captain Lions against Crusaders
CJ Stander had scored a try on his debut for the Lions to put them 7-5 ahead after R Ioane had gone in for the Blues . Scott Robertson said his unbeaten Crusaders side is relishing the chance to come up against Warren Gatland's Lions .

Norfolk resident Andrew Patton was one voter drawn to Stewart, who briefly served as Trump's campaign chairman in Virginia before he was sacked from the post.

Virginia voters picked their parties' nominees for governor, lieutenant governor and dozens of House of Delegates races on Tuesday, plus local contests in some areas.

Vogel defeated fellow state Sen. Stewart, known better around the state for his love of Confederate memorials than his county-government work, was supposed to fizzle against Gillespie, an establishment pick who almost picked off Mark Warner's US Senate seat in 2014.

There's no primary for Virginia's other statewide elected office, attorney general.

Virginia Democratic candidate for governor, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam supporters Mary Wright Baylor, center, and her husband Lew, of Springfield, Va., watch election returns with American Univsersity student Taylor Berlin, at a Democratic primary election party in Crystal City, Va., Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

"I think he is fiscally responsible", Sarah Revers, 52, said on her way out a polling place in Fairfax County. I will be a governor for all Virginians, and our policies will benefit all Virginians. Stewart's strength reveals a still deeply fractured primary electorate - and shows Trump and support for his agenda still remain popular among the GOP faithful.

That lack of enthusiasm may have affected turnout.

Four Democrats and two Republican incumbents fended off challengers Tuesday.

The turnout in the Democratic primary far exceeded the last one in 2009, when about 320,000 people voted. "We are going to carry it through into 2018", he said.

Harry, another voter who declined to give his last name, said he voted for Mr. Northam because of that ad.
