Northam defeats Republican candidate Gillespie to become the next governor of Virginia

Democratic candidate Ralph Northam easily defeated Republican candidate Ed Gillespie to become the next governor of Virginia, The Hill reported.

Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie in the race to succeed Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and his win gives Democrats their first major victory since Trump took office.

On the heels of tonight’s major victory for Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam over Republican Ed Gillespie, Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Ed Gillespie in a tweet.

"Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!" Trump tweeted.
