    Looking good so far for Cuccinelli, but I don't believe his lead will hold. I think there are a bunch of DC 'burbs that generally report late.

    If Cucc loses Prince William & Loudon, he's done. Loudon used to be reliably Republican.

    11000 vote lead with 94% in. Cant see this going back to Cuccinelli. I would suspect they will call it at 95% or 96% based on whats remaining (NoVA vote).

    Too much spread for a recount. McAuliffe will win but certainly a much closer race than expected.

    Republicans losing an open race in an off-year with lower Democratic turnout is not good for them. McAuliffe very likely won because of Republican crossover votes, since a lot of Democrats didn't bother to show.

    Glad McAulliffe won. Now Virginia can get their own health care exchanges and we may be on our way to gay marriage. I wish they'd get rid of that 5% prepared food tax on top of the now 6% sales tax.

    Here's the other issue too - Gov. McDonnell (R) was involved in some illicit gifts scandal that also tarnished Cuccinelli. Not just cut and dry over the shutdown and/or Obamacare.

    Plus you had a 3rd party candidate who pulled a bunch more from Republicans that he did Democrats. Still, he closed from a 10 - 12 point deficit a few days earlier to within striking distance. I just didn't think he would quite pull it out.
