Virginia remains democrat at the top leadership with Lt. Governor Northam (D) winning the Governor’s race, Justin Fairfax (D) winning as Lt. Governor and Mark Herring (D) retaining his seat as Attorney General.
The balance of representation for Loudoun with lawmakers at the General Assembly has shifted with Tag Greason (R, 32nd District) losing to newcomer David Reid (D) and Randy Minchew (R, 10th District) loosing to Wendy Gooditis (D). John Bell (D, 87th District) also retained his seat. Delegate David LaRock (R, 33rd District) was the sole Loudoun based Republican to avoid an upset.
The balance of power in the Virginia House of Delegates may also shift to Democrat control with so many Republican losses.
Noteworthy is the 13th District where Bob Marshall (R), the 11-term, 26-year, hardcore conservative incumbent lost to Danica Roem, a journalist turned public works advocate, who will be the state’s first transgender legislator.
The 13th District race was heated and attracted national attention after Marshall proposed a bill restricting which bathrooms transgenders could use.
