Virginia voters continue to abandon the GOP.
In the first House flip of the night, Democrat Jennifer Wexton has easily defeated Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA).
The Virginia Republican has long been seen as highly vulnerable. As the GOP under Trump lurched to the far right, Virginia, and particularly college-educated voters in the suburbs, moved to the left.
Comstock’s lopsided loss, combined with Sen. Tim Kaine’s easy reelection today, only adds to the GOP’s woes in the Commonwealth.
With Tim Kaine’s big win now secured, and no statewide contest until 2020, the VA GOP will go at least 11 years without victory in a state they dominated not long ago. Plus, the last time the VA GOP went 11 years without a win was before 1969. Ya think there’s a problem there?
