New Jersey

Governor: Heading into Election Day, Phil Murphy seemed well-positioned to become the first Democrat reelected as governor here since 1977. That may still happen, but the race is much tighter than expected. As of this writing, Murphy and Republican Jack Ciattarelli are separated by fewer than 2,000 votes out of almost 2.4 million counted.

NJ State Legislature: A significant number of races remain uncalled. However, Democrats started the day with significant majorities in both branches and will likely remain in control as the remaining votes are counted.  NJ Legislature Live Results >> 

Virginia

Republicans swept all three statewide offices: Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General.  All Virginia Results >>

House of Delegates:  Democrats took control of the lower house of the Virginia Legislature in 2019 winning 55 of the 100 seats that year. As of this morning, Republicans have held all 45 of the districts they won in 2019 and flipped four Democratic-held districts (12, 63, 75 and 83). Democrats have won 46 seats.

Five Democratic-held districts remain uncalled. Republicans must win two of them to win a majority.  The table below shows the party leading as of about 8:30 AM ET Wednesday morning. See the live results below the table for the latest.

District Lead District Lead
10 D + 1.5% 85 D + 0.3%
21 D + 1.2% 91 R + 1.0%
28 R + 2.2%    

Congress (Special Elections)

As expected, Democrat Shontel Brown won in Ohio District 11, while Republican Mike Carey prevailed in Ohio 15.

The only other House vacancy is in Florida's 20th district, where there is an extremely tight race for the Democratic nomination. Earning the nomination is tantamount to winning the general election in this deep blue seat formerly held by the late Alcee Hastings.  

As of this morning, just 12 votes separate Broward Count Commissioner Dale Holness and businesswoman Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick.

Mayoral Elections

Eric Adams (D) was elected mayor of New York City. Further upstate, Buffalo mayor Byron Brown, who lost in the Democratic primary, appears to have won via a successful write-in campaign. However, we won't know for sure until the write-ins are processed. This may be a couple weeks.

Michelle Wu is the first woman elected mayor of Boston. Republican Francis Suarez won reelection by a landslide in Miami. Bruce Harrell looks like he is going to be Seattle's next mayor, although the race hasn't been officially called yet. Jacob Frey is leading in Minneapolis, but the winner will be determined via a ranked choice process. In Atlanta, Felicia Moore will advance to a runoff. Former mayor Kasim Reed narrowly trails Andre Dickens for the second spot.
