What Will Primary Turnout Mean for the Democratic Candidates for Governor?

While Perriello is trying to use the clout of his buddies in D.C., the last we checked he was polling about even with Democratic competitor Ralph Northam. Northam had particularly strong support from some abortion rights and gun control groups, advocates from two areas where Perriello had baggage from past votes in Congress.

Northam is a more traditional candidate who stresses his pragmatic approach and ability to work with Republicans.

Wagner has said proposed cuts are unrealistic and wants to increase the gas tax.

"Politicians have to be straightforward", Northam said. Both candidates have moved left to fit within the more aggressively liberal Democratic Party of the Trump era. Tom Perriello, Northam's opponent in the Democratic primary, has held multiple town hall and canvasing events in Loudoun in the days and weeks leading up to the election. And turnout in the Democratic primary far outpaced the Republican side. Stewart's campaign has mostly been composed of attacks on undocumented workers, defense of Confederate monuments, and oaths of fealty to the president. In the counties of Southwest Virginia, Perriello received 2,194 votes compared to 2,180 votes for Northam.

"We'll still be here when he's gone", said Bonnie Reid, 70, a Northam volunteer. Dominion Energy is backing the construction of one pipeline, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, and Perriello has been a vocal critic of the politically influential energy giant. But Perriello's bid earlier this year upended the race, with the former congressman catching national attention for his fiery anti-Trump rhetoric.

"I think the midterm elections and statewide elections are very critical to the national issues", said one voter. His plan would lower the tax rate on income over $17,000 a year from 5.75 percent to 5.15 percent. He has said he would be focused on creating economic opportunity and security for the middle class by helping small businesses thrive and expanding workforce development.

Just before 2:30 p.m. - and still energetic - Perriello made the case for voting in an off-year election to the owner of a Cajun restaurant in Petersburg.

No matter what happens on Tuesday, national political prognosticators are going to attempt to draw a grand conclusion on what the result tells us about American voters in the era of Trump.

Stewart is an ardent supporter of Trump and was a former state campaign chairman for the president's campaign previous year.

Byrd, alarmed by Stanley's underwhelming manner, supposedly came around to his candidacy after a conversation with Stanley's peppery wife, who was an heiress to a furniture fortune and a generous underwriter of the conservative Democratic organization that then ruled Virginia.

Virginia Republican gubernatorial hopeful Ed Gillespie greets voters mid-afternoon at the polls at Glen Allen High School, near Richmond, Va., on primary day across the state on Tuesday June 13, 2017. Two months ago, Stewart participated in an "ask me anything" session on Reddit's largest pro-Trump forum, where, among other things, he called Gillespie a "cuckservative".

On the campaign trail, Delegate Davis also talks about his experience in the General Assembly, especially his time on the a cybersecurity subcommittee. Wagner has represented the 7th Senate District (Virginia Beach and Norfolk) since 2002 and was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1992-2001.

Gillespie is also known for co-founding QGA Public Affairs (formerly known as Quinn Gillespie & Associates) in 2000, a bipartisan lobbying firm, with his partner Jack Quinn.
