The Republican sweep of statewide offices in Virginia is complete, as the Virginian-Pilot has called the attorney general's race for Ken Cuccinelli. Let the debate begin about who Democrats nominate for governor in 2013 -- there's no obvious candidate.
By the way, Nate Silver has a good post extrapolating that McDonnell's margin is likely to be 56%-44% or so.
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.
