(StrictlyNews.com) – Breaking Now: In the most-watched race of the 2021 election cycle, based on the latest projection by the non-partisan Cook Political Report, Republican Glenn Youngkin has defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the race to be the next governor of the state of Virginia.
While the immediate impact will play out in Virginia when Youngkin is sworn in as governor, this result will be considered an early bellwether for the mid-term congressional elections next year when the GOP hopes to take back the U.S. House of Representatives from the control of Nancy Pelosi and the U.S. Senate from Chuck Schumer.
Historically, the Virginia gubernatorial race, always held the year after presidential elections, is a strong indicator of both political parties’ electoral fortunes the following year.
So, there is no doubt that, at this moment, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party are extremely concerned and realize they are in serious trouble. At the same time, the Republican Party feels very encouraged and hopeful as the calendar closes in on another national election year.
It’s a safe bet that next year’s congressional mid-term elections will be the most contentious in modern American history as the two parties seem to grow farther apart ideologically by the day.
This has been a breaking news report, and it will be updated if warranted by additional developments.
