Democrat Ralph Northam wins the Virginia governor’s race, as Ed Gillespie concedes.

Polls leading up to the election showed the two candidates neck and neck, but Tuesday Northam edged out Gillespie to win.

President Trump has been critical of Northam, saying he is weak on crime and horrible for Virginia’s economy.

The president had backed Ed Gillespie and tweeted that despite the loss he worked hard.

He went on to mention that republicans won four out of four house seats and quote ‘we will continue to win, even bigger than before.’

Northam is poised to take over for outgoing Democrat Governor Terry Mcauliffe who reached his term limit.

 

  • Quantum Leap

    Gillespie was uninspiring. He was a GOP Swamp Creature. Of course the Democratic Party is insane so Gillespie was the lesser of 2 evils.

  • Allmedialies

    Curtis in the House!

  • Tony Anthony

    None of this is news.. Big deal, A democratic mayor won in NYC, that din’t take a genius to figure out, even thou the guy is a crook. Virginia has a Democratic Lt Gov not news there, they almost always have a Dem in office.. So nothing real big… Somehow CNN and MSNBC and CBS and ABC will turn this into a big rally against Trump

  • Fred Weatherly

    The expansion of evil in Virginia.

  • 2017 trip

    All those dead people went to the polling stations and showed their gov’t issued photo IDs, gave their address and were allowed to vote.
    And they ONLY voted dem.
    Got it.

    • #MAGA #WINNING #MAGA #MAGA

      The vote fraud yesterday was high enough to turn this election. And we probably lost another 15-20 points by running rino swamp creature gillespie instead of a tried and true Tea Party Conservative. We will see next month in Alabama what happens when we run a REAL Conservative (Spoiler alert — Roy Moore wins!!). Hopefully we will learn from this mistake in 2018.

  • Roger Belcher

    Were electronic voting machines used? Were voters turned away from the polls? Were the voter rolls purged? Did illegal aliens or dead people vote? Is there an audit trail? I say all elections are invalid until we have a solid voting system.

  • 2017 trip

    Go Gillespie (R) !!! Under the bus.

  • a non

    Poor babies — in big time denial. Whenever you don’t get your way, something devious is too blame: Lost an election — must have been rigged! Supreme Court rules against something you want — rogue justices! Well, at least you’ve got a basement full of guns, eh? Pathetic.

    • sanman99

      President Clinton, oh that’s right!!!

  • Sylvia Avila

    RIG!! Election, Clinton’s and Obama’s involved that is all you need to know!!

    • Jenny O

      Maybe. But No. Va, like DC and Maryland, is very urban and hugely comprised of federal government and contractor workers. Also, EXTREMELY populated with illegals and foreigners (like NYC), who influence politicians and voters toward sympathy for globalism and sanctuary communities.
      I wonder what the voting stats are south of Charlottesville.

      • Sylvia Avila

        Right! You are!

  • jvlewis

    Mr. President. If you want Va to turn red by 2020 you need to decrease the size of the federal govt. Va is blue because of all the federal workers that have swamped Northern Va over the last 10 to 14 years. Downsize the govt now! The fact that this was a close election tells me that conservatives are still strong in Va but we are overwhelmed by libs in only two areas, Richmond and Arlington/Fairfax.

    • a non

      Wasn’t close — Northam won by 9 points (that’s essentially a butt-kicking). Too bad, so sad.

    • #MAGA #WINNING #MAGA #MAGA

      What we need to do is make sure that conflict of interest rules apply at the polls so that the fed employees and welfare and medicaid and food stamp and section 8 people can’t just show up and vote themselves more free goodies.

  • Ed

    IMHO, yesterday was a rock thrown through the republican establishment window. I will bet, however, most of the establishment will not get the message making a Nov ’18 blodbath very possible.

  • TYvets

    What were the final percentages, OAN?

    • limapie

      53.9% Northam Dem
      45% Gillespie GOP
      1.1% Hyra LP
      Source VA Dept of Elections

      • TYvets

        Thank you. I was trying to point out to OAN that their coverage could be better. Thank you, though.

        • limapie

          One reason they did not print it, is because there is a period of time where candidates can contest the count. So, these numbers I gave you are right now not fully final.

          • TYvets

            I know. Others put it out the same night, often in real time.Thank you, though.

    • a non

      Won’t find out on this news (?) site — OAN’s lead story this morning was that Trump thanked the DEA for its drug return program. Hahahahah

      • TYvets

        Did you say something?

  • Hottotrote

    Even though it really sounds like VA didn’t have a descent candidate I can’t help but remember that that those who took over Russia, Italy & Germany with communism…it isn’t those who vote that matter, it is those who count the votes that matter!

    • limapie

      so in the 2016 election…remember the Green candidate was calling for a recount? The recount witnesses in Detroit reported seeing one ballot having been ran through the counting machine SIX times

  • Joe samo

    As the demwits always say the election is in the trunk.

  • KevinR.

    Gillespie is a progressive establishment Republican who had been rejected previously… and who barely won against Corey Stewart, the more Conservative candidate…. to become the Republican candidate….
    And the GOP keeps choosing these establishment progressive Republicans, and they will start to see more and more losses…
    Virginia chose a Marxist Democrat, Virginia may deserve what it gets… and as a Virginian, I do have serious concerns for the future of the state and nation.
    If Trump signs the amnesty bill, Democrats will win all future elections.

    • Joe samo

      And he had the bush in his corner.

    • TYvets

      Amen

    • limapie

      Could it have been possible that that the cross-over vote in VA chose Gillespie? I think so.

      • limapie

        THEN there is also corrupt poll workers. VA is a Swamp thing state. These people have no sense of right or wrong. I wouldn’t put it pass anyone in authority to rig things, like making sure Gillespie was the nominee.

      • KevinR.

        What????

        Crossover vote?

        Gillespie lost. If there had been a crossover vote, he would have won.

  • James Batten Jr.

    The dem won but was booed off stage at his own victory gathering. What am I missing here?

  • Mr. Deplorable

    To celebrate the 1st anniversary of the historic, landslide win of President Donald J. Trump I’m going to watch videos of libs crying like leftard babies last year. It warms my heart every time I see it. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!

    • John Douglas

      Did that yesterday, enjoyed it yugely:)

  • Robert Johnson

    What is wrong with people in Virginia? Stuck on stupid? Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!!!

  • antiliberal00

    Virginians must be dumber than bricks to vote for another anti-American communist. It would seem they have forgotten their history.

  • Mr. Deplorable

    Ralphie Boy puts the Goober in Gubernatorial. Enjoy your MS13 and sanctuary cities VA & NJ, you dumbfk leftards. LOL!!!!

    The only election that mattered was a year ago. Next year they will matter again. The next after that will be in 3 years. #MAGA #TRUMP2020

    • Mr. Deplorable

      The still sobbing leftards need to grab onto something as the 1st anniversary of their world collapsing hit them square in the face. They honestly believed President Trump would be impeached and removed from office by June. LOL!!!!

  • Joseph Verville

    With Terry McCauliff as governor, I believe the fix is in. Look what happened with Sanders and the DNC. Virginia has gone to hell in a bucket.

  • Impaler

    Poor Virginia. They’ve got big problems ahead.

  • Bud

    So, how many votes were necessary for the Democrats to manufacture this time?

  • Chris J.

    Looks like he’s saying, “This is how big my opponents penis is.”

    The Swamp Strikes Back! No way was Terry McAuliffe gonna let a republican succeed him!

  • FromThe70s

    Another POS governor. Thanks, transplants.

  • Bay0Wulf

    Here I have to wonder how much of this election is due to voter fraud.
    It seems that there has been some pretty definitive reports of large amounts of it during the 2016 election. I haven’t heard of any attempt to address or repair that …

    • Mr. Deplorable

      It’s not voter fraud, it’s pure, unadulterated voter stupidity. They voted for Hillary, what more proof does one need?

      • Bay0Wulf

        I understand your response but as much as I would like to agree, it is too simplistic an answer

        • Mr. Deplorable

          Often the simplest answer is the correct one.

  • PatrickJ

    One such victory is not significant. The majority of the Democratic Party are in real trouble.

  • Raj Laser

    In the 2016 Presidential Election, I voted for Trump for USA President , not for Governor or Senators or others. Because, I do not trust these people.

  • Native Born American

    Voter fraud indeed! I’ve been voting at the same location for 15 years, this year all new faces were manning my location and plenty of non English speakers in line who needed help marking their ballots.

    I was also concern that my ballot went into a large plastic container after it was “scanned” but there were no lights or indication that scanning actually took place. More like scamming.

    We’ve also notice an overwhelming number of vehicles in the local area with New York license plates in recent weeks. It’s not as though this is a big tourist attraction area.

    The results of this election make me seriously question the legality of the election itself. When a Democrat wins in an area predominantly conservative, that’s a precursor to third world country status.

    He’s not my Governor!

    • a non

      Ah, the same old Republican “voter fraud” crapola (and, of course, more racist insinuations about “non English speakers”). The truth is, dear “native born,” that you’re just in denial about Virginia having kicked the butt of Trumpism — and it wasn’t even close.

      • Laurie

        Trump didn’t win VA, so your statement is tripe.

      • Tim maher

        VA was the only southern state dumb enough to vote for Hillary so their voting for the democrat is no surprise. Much of the VA population are Washington DC elitests.

      • Native Born American

        You must consume great quantities of the demo Kool aide.

        Making a factual observation is not racist, unless you buy into the whole denial brainwashing propaganda.

    • a non

      Well, actually yes he is…..

  • Vote Fraud!

  • FoolIggy

    Virginia is part of the DC SWAMP and has plenty of political swamp rats that call it home as they travel their tunnels in and out of the swamp nest!

    As long as Washington SUCKS $$’s from all over America into the DC Swamp, the swamp rat politicians will come to feed on the cheese and haul it back to their nest! That’s how the demoncrats system works!

    Liberals love cheese and anyone that promises them more FREE CHEESE will get their vote.

    The very reason demoncrats do NOT want voter ID is it would help eliminate VOTER FRAUD!

    America has the technology to let every American VOTE from their computer with smartcard technology but the demoncrats will never allow it as long as they can obtain one more unregistered dead or immigrant vote!

  • A marcus Young

    I hope Ed challenges the election for a re-count. Ill bet they find fraud within the first few minutes. Come on people we have got to expose this subversion.

  • A marcus Young

    You have to remember Virginia was the capital of the Confederacy. It was expected that a Democrat would win.

  • Melissa McShane

    Experts said the same thing about momentum into 2018 the past 5 or so elections. I guess they’re needing a major Democrat Party win so they’ll keep saying it until they get one.

  • a non

    Great day in Virginia!

  • Tim maher

    Surprise, surprise. The only southern state stupid enough to vote for Hillary Clinton voted for the democrat. Some people never learn.

  • TYvets

    Not a good day in Virginia. Not a surprise, but not a good day.

  • Bob

    I think the Democrats cleaned house? At least that’s what I’m seeing on Fox and Breitbart…? New Jersey, Virginia… Trump and all his chaos doesn’t help anyone but Trump and his brand….

    • Melissa McShane

      Ummmm. There were several elections prior to these where Trump cleaned house. These are usual Democrat strongholds! Prior elections were upsets.

    • Tim maher

      Three east coast states? Cleaned house? Give me a break. Cleaned the corner of the out house maybe. Not a big issue as the country goes. The dems still have no winning platform and no leaders.

  • RMCS Ret.

    If I remember my geography correctly, SW VA is coal mining country. That would seem to put it squarly in Gillespie’s pocket.

    • TYvets

      It is and should be, yes; however, FFX and Richmond are blue.

    • Tim maher

      You also have to take into consideration that the Washington DC elite live in VA not DC. Also, this was the only southern state stupid enough to vote for Hillary Clinton. Some people just never learn.

      • BillVA

  • Billy

    A Gillespie win would really say that America has had it with socialism!

  • Localdude

    poor Terry. Clinton was supposed to win…so she, the FBI and the DOJ was supposed to make Terry ‘King of Virginia’. Since the DNC is in shambles, maybe he can go be a FAKE news contributor at CNN. He’s pretty convincing at it, I think he believes a lot of what he spews. maybe not, just cant tell..

  • Butthep

    Ed Gillespie will win for sure.

    • G. Robert

      What if he doesn’t?

  • Visualverbs

    Considering how much it pissesoff the liberal fascists when anyone suggests we require valid, picture IDs to vote, I wonder how’d they like a reinstated literacy, language, and intelligence test to be able to cast a ballot.

    I say, #BRINGITBACK

    • All American

      With you🇺🇸

    • Hottotrote

      A picture ID is required even in countries that only have one candidate to vote for so yea…anyone who does not like picture IDs that proves citizenship is a fool, and useful idiot or a Globalist/communist trying to take over our country by destroying our constitution!
      BUT! everyone knows how to read…maybe not English but they know how to read or they have someone with them they trust that knows how to read or they can’t vote! Really that is an outdated statement and not worthy of consideration!

      • Visualverbs

        They need to be literate in ENGLISH (read, write, and speak) to vote in our elections. Period.

    • 2017 trip

      WTF are you snowflaking about?
      I have had to show a photo ID every time I have voted in Virginia.

      • Visualverbs

        All three times you voted in this election, fascist asshat? You exemplify the need for an intelligence test.

        • 2017 trip

          excellent well reasoned rebuttal.
          By the way, I only voted once.
          Perhaps you can describe how I could’ve voted more than once.
          And you might want to look up the definition of “fascism”.

          • Visualverbs

            It definitely was a well reasoned rebuttal to “WTF are you snowflaking about?” – GFY.

            Fascism – a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. – from Merriam Webster.

            A perfect description of today’s liberals.

            Game. Set. Match.

          • 2017 trip

            …still waiting for your explanation of how I voted three times.

            I’m willing to take your intelligence test whenever you desire sweetums.

            And please explain how I am a fascists: show how I have shown “a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition”.

  • xmisterx9

    Once again the DNC and Hollywood poured in massive amounts of money and added some racist ads.
    Hopefully they will be disappointed in the outcome … again.

  • Justsayin…….

    I used to live in Manassas and it is just about totally illegal. And those illegals vote, so…. Moved 2,000 miles away to get away from people who claim to want to be citizens but don’t even bother to speak English. They should have no right to vote.

  • Gary Rogers

    Both are establishment politicians, and I would have rather seen Corey Stewart win this, but I’ll take Gillespie over Northam and vote for Stewart when he runs for the Senate spot.

  • Javanne

    The GOP had better keep a close eye on poll watchers, ballot boxes (or whatever is used in VA), and vote counts. The Democrats may have Mayor Daley operatives down there.

  • Mark Heinzen

    Polls don’t mean anything anymore, especially conducted by a university.

  • G. Robert

    Yeah.. but the main problem is the voters from Northern VA (Next door to D.C.). They intend to vote democrats, because of their left-wing commie agenda. No matter what. Sad story.

    And I don’t think Ed is going to win. The latest polls from Real Clear Politics are out and it shows that Ralph is leading slightly big. Not good.

    And let’s face it, Virginia is gone. It’s a blue state, and it’ll never become a red state ever again. Sad 🙁

    • All American

      You gotta have faith, faith, faith🇺🇸

      • G. Robert

        I know. But sometimes faith doesn’t work. Sorry to say that.

      They will 🙁

    • All American

  • Don G

    Gillespie was painted as a white supremacist. Of course Dems accuse anyone running against them of being a racist. If you believe in working hard and enjoying the rewards of your work, you are racists. If you don’t like terrorism, you are racists. If you don’t believe in giving money to people who havenot or unlikely to contribute to society, you are racists. If you believe getting a job or entrance to school should be based soley on your ability, then you are racists. IT is actually becoming a good thing to be racists by the new definitions the democrats use.

      • TruthBTold

        Lets see what happens in 2018. Virginia is deep state territory in the northern 3rd of the state (basically a suburb of D.C. populated by the “swamp monsters”). No surprise that they are all in favor of big brother government.

            Well, I’ve tried twice to provide you with a link to a Washington Post article documenting an arrest of a person for registering dead voters for the democrat party in VA in the 2016 elections but OANN keeps deleting it. Google dead voters and you will get several articles. LBJ was known for using dead voters too, not to mention numerous dead Chicago voters historically, so no, this is not a lie.

          • Larry Huff

            I wonder why OANN sucks so badly that they have to delete such things. I thought OANN was my last hope in unbiased news. I guess they have fell to the pigs of politics also

          • Tim maher

            The above response
            was directed to troll Larry Huff but it appears his responses and infantile name calling have been deleted too. Thank you OANN.

            Do the dead voter show up at the polls?
            I think they’d be easy to spot (or smell).

          • Tim maher

            Actually, they look and smell exactly like democrats.

            Seriously though, once democrats register the dead, they vote absent tee or have someone show up in their place to cast an illegal vote. Not really rocket science.

          • 2017 trip

            I live and vote in VA. I have had to show a photo ID and state my address.
            This election my ID was scanned for authenticity.
            Are you suggesting a dead person, or someone representing them, could do the same and be allowed to vote?
            If so, please explain how.

          • Tim maher

            Good. It sounds like great progress is being made in your state. I’m for voter id everywhere. I suspicion that if it were to occur it would be an inside job behind the scenes out of plain view.

  • William Thompson

    Translation, Gillespie winning big time.

  • Faye Wing

    Good LUCK Gillespie … fingers are crossed..

  • JCAK

    In reality, it’s not close, but Democrat voter fraud makes it so. They’ve likely imported thousands of votes from across state lines, and from the graveyards.

    • G. Robert

      And ex-felons 🙁

    • Bob

      You know about 120 million Americans didn’t vote in the last election, so politicians can’t even get real Americans to vote, but somehow just because I voted for Trump I’m supposed to believe this lie that there are millions of illegal votes? They can’t even get the people who can and should vote to vote, how the hell are they gonna pull off that kinda number… and they’ve only found like 1000 false votes… and plenty of those were republicans…

      • ddnews119

        I don’t know where you are getting your information because they found more than 5000 fraudulent votes in New Hampshire alone for 2016. LA has 144 voters registered for every 100 people eligible to vote. These are just irregularities that we know about while Democrats stonewall every investigation so we can’t find the true amount of voter fraud.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Yes, Dems very good at election fraud! It seems out election process is very unreliable. Time we start checking who is really voting, because voter fraud from Dems will continue as long as we ignore it. Time to call them out!

      • Bay0Wulf

        Well … there’s always the concept that voters who do so illegally or fraudulently… VOTE. Hence Voter Fraud … hard to vote fraudulently if you don’t actually vote.
        The problem of Getting legitimate voters out to vote should be self explanatory…
        I too am wondering where you got your info about the numbers of fraudulent voters from because the information I have indicates quite a bit more than your 1000 … in Virginia alone in 2016

      • Goodforall

        There is plenty of evidence of voter fraud. California was in the millions.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Yes, and still going on it seems, Dems are very good at rigging elections it seems. I say time to count the votes, and see who is registered and who is not?

        • Carol Upton

          Immigration just put a Mexican woman in prison for 8 years for voting illegally 5 TIMES! After prison, it’s deportation for her, and hopefully a wall to keep her from coming back!

      • KevinR.

        Actually, there is more evidence of voter fraud… but part of that fraud is to not get caught, so, if you only consider the fraud that is known as a percent of the total, there would be far more…
        and yes, some Republican fraud is in that list… but the majority is and has been Democrat.
        That does not change the fact that Gillespie is a Liberal Progressive Establishment Republican who had been rejected in the past…. and was not wanted…. and was pushed by the establishment GOP…
        and since we now know, he lost… it can be said he was rejected AGAIN.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Big money machine from the Clinton’s and Obama we in the state. so that says it all! Voter fraud on a big scale with those criminals involved. Time to really count those Votes.

    • Joe samo

      As the demwits always say it is in the trunk.

      Yes, Dems are very good at voter fraud, they have proven it in their past elections. Do not Trust this out come! I say better check who really voted? and who rig this one? Clinton’s?

    • 2017 trip

      It’s so blatant that it is easily detected and prosecuted.
      Or maybe not.

  • Martin Arredondo

    Anyone that I speak with is voting for Gillespie and I know people are getting out to vote for this one much like for the election in 2016. They want to “take Virginia back” even if it is only for four years.

    • Letmesay

      Well it only takes (1) vote more then the other guy…I hope he makes it. We need more republicans, just hope yet respect our president.

    • Bay0Wulf

      I think the dead have had their way once again in Virginia. It’s surprising to me that the dead would vote with illegals but … there ya go …

  • Donald York

    It’s the Northern Virginian’s that Mr. Gillespie will have to win over. I hope that he is the winner.

    • TYvets

      We voted for him. So, for us, yes, but because he’s not sufficiently conservative. In Fairfax, I doubt he’ll win over the crowd. My daughter is VERY outnumbered there 🙂

      • Bud

        I believe he is much more conservative than is his opponent. Sometimes that is the only standard that can be used, such as with Trump and Hillary.

    • Gary Rogers

      Both are establishment politicians, and I would have rather seen Corey Stewart win this, but I’ll vote for him when he runs for the Senate spot.

      • KevinR.

        Indeed.
        Stewart would have been the better choice…
        However, the Establishment GOP did not put any support behind him and chose Gillespie who they pushed to win…. he became the GOP candidate, and it was already written he would lose.
        Virginia rejected him in the past…. they rejected him again.

  • TYvets

    Flock? Things have been pretty slow here… sadly.

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      Are you working at one of the election sites?

      • TYvets

        Not in one place.

        • Cheryl the Deplorable

          Well keep your chin up, most PTrump supporters work for a living, they’ll be there after work.

          • TYvets

            Usually early in the morning, then some at lunch, then some after work. I do get concerned about the after work crowd, as I saw a military person turned away one election, when he showed up about 15 seconds late (that’s completely serious… my watch said he came in under the wire, but the official call was that he missed). When they call time, that’s it, no one else in.
            Here those people are often working at the Pentagon etc. and it’s a long drive home. If the traffic is bad (and it’s raining here)….
            I always hope they’ll go for absentee or get out a little bit early.
            My rule used to be to get over a bridge when in DC before 5 or after 6… now it’s more like before 4, and sometimes 3:30… if one wants to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam.

    Go Gillespie..

  • Varangian Guard

    Polls did NOT work for HRC and it won’t work for Perez and any of his merry band of thieves anymore………

    • LILIBETH

      Dead and illegal voters can make a difference though.

      • Bob

        How’s Trump voter commission going? Seems not so good… SAD.

        • LILIBETH

          Time to get rid of illegal voters…

        • guest

          SAD? Several blue states are refusing to cooperate making the job much more difficult. However, the commission will ferret out much of the voter fraud whether you believe there are minimal incidences or not.

  • Captain America

    GO GILLESPIE (R)!!! NO MORE LIBERALS ANYWHERE – REMOVE THEM FROM PLANET EARTH!
    NO MORE RHINOs EITHER!
    #MAGA

    • KevinR.

      GO GILLESPIE (R)!!! NO MORE LIBERALS ANYWHERE
      You do know Gillespie is a liberal … a liberal progressive, that Virginia had rejected in the past…. when he lost the last election… and considering the time and day, we can say he was rejected again by Virginia.
