Although the Democratic contest garnered the most pre-election attention, Ed Gillespie’s narrow victory against former Trump state campaign chairman Corey Stewart provided the night’s biggest surprise.

Gillespie was expected to win easily, and the close contest shows President Trump’s enduring appeal among GOP voters in Virginia and a potentially rocky path forward for Republicans in a state where Democrats have won every statewide election since 2009. Mallory Noe-Payne reports that Gillespie quickly turned his attention to his next opponent: Democrats.
