Cooch still leads the raw vote in Virginia, but outstanding vote in NoVa, where T-Mac is winning very heavily, virtually guarantees a comfortable Democratic win. Ralph Northam is definitely beating E.W. Jackson in the Lite Gov race, and the Herring-Obanshaim AG race is going down to the wire.

Bill DeBlasio won New York mayoral race the moment polls closed, and the Boston mayoral race, as expected, is a close race, though breaking news reports John Connelly has conceded to Marty Walsh.

Early returns from AL-1 shows very close race between Dean Young and Bradley Byrne.

For those wanting hard predictions, here’s Joe Jackson responding, “Don’t Ask Me.”
