Virginia lieutenant governor claims victory in Democratic primary

Irune Rengel | 19 Junio, 2017, 14:05

In the other primary, former RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie was supposed to make quick work of defeating Corey Stewart, a one-time state chairman for President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors. Gillespie barely defeated Corey Stewart, who was sacked as Trump's state campaign chairman previous year and focused his gubernatorial bid on preserving Virginia's Confederate history.

Republican Ed Gillespie won his party's nomination to be his party's candidate for Virginia Governor.

The close Republican result shocked many political watchers and shows Trump's enduring appeal among Republican voters in Virginia.

Several local candidates were among those seeking the nomination for governor - a closely watched race that is viewed as the first referendum on President Donald Trump since he took office.

In Fairfax and Loudoun counties more Democratic ballots than Republican ballots were being cast, in part because the Democratic race for governor between Northam and former Perriello was seen as the closest race.

The governor's race in Virginia, a swing state where a recent Washington Post and George Mason University poll showed 59 percent of voters disapprove of Trump's performance, is shaping up as a pivotal battleground with national implications.

From that point, Pakistan changed gears scoring 33 runs in the next two overs with Jadeja and Ashwin leaking 16 and 17 runs. Ravindra Jadeja did not let that happen as he refused to sacrifice his wicket when he and Pandya were stranded at one end.

The winds of anti-Trump sentiment sentiment seem to be blowing hard in Virginia as Democratic turnout for the 2017 Gubernatorial primaries appear to have broken previous records.

The race stood at Northam with 55.4% of the Democratic vote to Perriello's 44.6% at the 90% mark. Looking at county-level maps of the two races, Perriello's campaign manager, Brennan Gilmore, noted that his candidate-whose old congressional district included a rural area around Charlottesville-won numerous same interior counties as Stewart.

"There is one word you will never hear from me, and that's unity", Stewart says. Northam, the sitting lieutenant governor, was the establishment favorite, backed by current Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Virginia U.S. Sens. Now the critical question is whether Stewart supporters will turn out for Gillespie in November. "We've been backing down too long in defense of our culture, and our heritage and our country".

With more than 90 percent of precincts reporting, Republican Sen.

Gillespie will face Democrat Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam in the general election.

Northam had the support of the state Democratic Party's core constituencies, including teachers groups and African-American political and religious leaders.

Mr. Trump's shadow hung over both primaries, with Democratic voters in Alexandria saying they were physically repulsed by Mr. Trump and applauding Mr. Northam for labeling him a "narcissistic maniac" in one of his closing campaign ads.

Gillespie's GOP ticket-mate will be State Senator Jill Holtzman Vogel of Fauquier County. That's the type of enthusiasm Democrats have been banking on to build a midterm election backlash to Trump, and the 2017 Virginia race will be a critical test of whether or not they can do that.

Gillespie likely will begin the race with significantly more money than Northam, who will need to refill his campaign chest after flooding the airwaves with commercials to fend off Perriello.

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.

Gillespie vows to pursue "timeless conservative principles", including a 10 percent cut in state income tax rates.

For the Democrats, former Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Fairfax earned the right to run for Lt. Governor by more than 40,000 votes over challengers Susan Platt and Gene Rossi.
