News outlets called the highly anticipated Virginia gubernatorial race for the Democrat Ralph Northam early Tuesday evening over Republican Ed Gillespie.

Voters are likely happy to see the end of an election that became angry and contentious. Democrats accused Gillespie of using "white nationalist" narratives, while his defenders said Northam allies were race-baiting to push their agenda.

Earlier Tuesday the New Jersey gubernatorial election was also called for the Democrat, Phil Murphy, over Republican Kim Guadagno.

President Trump endorsed Gillespie, but didn't actively campaign for him.

This means the media will likely paint the defeat as a defeat for the president more than one for Gillespie.
