Election results
Democrats not only won Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial races. They made significant gains in down ballot in local races across the country.

Dem Leadership
RRToon: At the moment it seems like Democrats are weak on the national and state level. In the south it’s really bad. Virginia seems to be a bright spot.
