Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor

Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor

Anyone in line when the polls close at 7 p.m. will still be able to vote.

Virginia's gubernatorial contest has received widespread national attention as the swing state is one of only two states electing new governors this year. Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie has a major lead in fundraising and has led in public polls over state Sen.

The lieutenant governor and the former congressman have few policy differences and share a similar liberal agenda on many issues. Obama has remained neutral in the race, but many of his former aides have lined up behind Perriello. While he may not have the high-profile endorsements of Northam, experts say he's attracting the same group that aligned with Sen.

In the Democratic race, Northam comfortably won statewide by almost 12 percent of the vote, and the lieutenant governor carried Loudoun County by 2.5 percent of Democratic ballots cast.

She said Northam has "proven he can work across the aisle".

"Politicians have to be straightforward", Northam said.

The Democratic primary contest has been a hard fought battle between Northam, the state party establishment's favorite, and insurgent candidate Tom Perriello.

The June 13 primary, Perriello said at a recent town hall, was the first big test for Democrats in the age of Trump.

But Perriello, who sought to tout a progressive vision for the state, got more support from national Democrats. "I don't think that Tom Perriello, despite being endorsed by Bernie Sanders, is as progressive as he's made out to be because of his track record".

Perriello, who poured money into a large staff, also let Northam outspent him on TV, 3-to-1 in some marks, according to a Democrat familiar with the ad spending.

The party out of power in the White House has won the Virginia governor's mansion in every election since 1977, with the exception of McAuliffe's 2013 win. Dominion Energy is backing the construction of one pipeline, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, and Perriello has been a vocal critic of the politically influential energy giant. Perriello is hoping Virginia progressives view his move as a signal that he will rid corporate influence from the governor's mansion - a task that will be much easier said than done.

Even if Gillespie does pull out the primary, the far closer than expected result will surely worry Republicans.

It warned that authorities would take all necessary measures to prevent provocations or any action threatening public security. Alexei Navalny has reportedly been arrested once again, after he urged people to join an anti-corruption protest.

In terms of tax rates, Gillespie believes that Virginia's tax plan is antiquated - Virginia's income tax has not been cut since 1972. He has said he would be focused on creating economic opportunity and security for the middle class by helping small businesses thrive and expanding workforce development.

Down ballot, in the Republican lieutenant governor's primary, state Sen. If you care about our state and our future, I urge you to vote for him too.

The frenetic Perriello, 42, held a 24-hour marathon campaign blitz throughout the commonwealth at the end of last week, stopping in diners, gas stations and holding a fun run.

"If you're looking for somebody who is not afraid of controversy, and if you're looking for a victor, then I am your candidate", Stewart said at a recent debate. The difficulty in doing accurate polls in an off-year primary (when turnouts are typically low) is magnified by the roiling political moment.

Gillespie has basically ignored Stewart, and the strategy has worked.
