It is officially over. A stunning vote was just held that may reverberate in 2020’s election. A crucial state’s House and Senate have flipped control for the first time in years.
“Democrats have secured total control in Richmond—the governorship and both chambers of the General Assembly—for the first time since 1993,” tweeted Politico reporter Ally Mutnick about the Virginia elections held this Tuesday.
Democrats in the Virginia Senate now have a 21-18 edge over Republicans, while the Democrats’ House of Delegates majority currently stands at 53-43. The mainstream media is ecstatic, of course, but they shouldn’t get too comfortable.
