    The Republican Party dominated the blue state of Virginia, where Democrat President Joe Biden won by 10 points just last year, as backlash builds to Biden's numerous crises and far-left Democrat policies.

    The biggest news of the night was that Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who previously served as the state's governor, with numerous publications calling the race during the early morning hours on Wednesday. Youngkin focused heavily on education and problems with local school boards during his campaign.

    The Wall Street Journal reported:

    Election officials said turnout was high. More than 3 million voters were reported late Tuesday, with votes still being counted. About 2.6 million Virginians voted in the last gubernatorial election in 2017, state election figures show. More than 2.2 million Virginians voted in the 2013 governor's race.

    Dave Wasserman of the non-partisan Cook Political Report and Decision Desk HQ called the Virginia Lieutenant Gubernatorial Election for Republican Winsome Sears and called the Virginia Attorney General Election for Republican Jason Miyares. Other major publications have said that the races were too close to call during the early morning hours on Wednesday, however, the Virginia Public Access Project called both races for the Republican candidates.

    The results from the three statewide races could not be overstated given the Republican Party's recent history in statewide races in Virginia.

    "Since Virginia went blue for Barack Obama in 2008, Republicans have been on a downhill slide, the pace of which quickened during President Donald Trump's administration," The Associated Press reported. "The GOP, which hasn't won a statewide race in Virginia since 2009, saw its legislative majority melt away."

    The Virginia Public Access Project projected that Republicans would end up winning the majority in the House of Delegates by 1 seat. "Chesterfield reports in-person early vote tally, which was enough to call 4 House races," the group said. "We project Del. Lashrecse Aird (D-Petersburg) will lose her seat, giving the House GOP +6 and a 1-seat majority in the House of Delegates."

    Wasserman weighed in on the situation involving the House of Delegates, writing, "As if tonight couldn't get worse for Dems, Republicans appear to have taken control of the VA House of Delegates by a single seat."

    During an interview on MSNBC, leftist political analyst Larry Sabato called the results from the election a "bloodbath" for Democrats.

    "The story is I'm not going to call it a blowout because we don't have the final numbers, but I will tell you somebody in, high up in McAuliffe's camp, who was there with McAuliffe, put it this way to me about an hour ago, it's a bloodbath," Sabato said. "And so far everything we've seen pretty much falls along that line."

    McAuliffe refused to concede on Tuesday night, claiming that the race was not over.

    "Folks, not everything is counted and we're still waiting for a lot of votes to come in," he claimed. "And we want to ensure every Virginians' voice is heard."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
