Republican Ken Cuccinell's victory in the race for attorney general sets up an election that could determine whether the G.O.P. takes complete control of Virginia state government just before redistricting.
Democrats hold a 21-19 edge in the State Senate and, without any senate elections today, they'll retain that edge. But, it would take just one Democratic senator switching parties or joining the McDonnell administration or having legal or health troubles to potentially tip the balance.
Cuccinelli, though, is a state senator from a Democratic-leaning district. The special election to replace him will determine whether Democrats have any breathing room.
