Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam has won the governor's race of Virginia according to the New York Time.

Lt. Gov. Ralph S. Northam, an understated physician and Army veteran,was elected governor of Virginia Tuesday, according to the Associated Press, overcoming a racially charged campaign by his Republican opponent and cementing Virginia’s transformation into a reliably Democratic state largely immune to Trump-style appeals. Mr. Northam was propelled to victory over Ed Gillespie, the Republican nominee, by liberal and moderate voters who were eager to send a message to President Trump in a state that rejected him in 2016 and where he is deeply unpopular.
