In very early returns, the Republicans running for lieutenant governor and attorney general are keeping up with Bob McDonnell at the top of their ticket. That matters more than the actual numbers at this point. If Bolling (for Lt. Gov.) and Cuccinelli (for AG) can do as well as McDonnell, they're almost certainly going to win.
By the way, polls close shortly in the Charlotte mayoral race.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
