Virginia Democratic and Republican gubernatorial primary election results

Challenger Corey Stewart, a former state campaign manager for President Donald Trump, carried a large number of counties in Southwest Virginia including 75 percent of the vote in Russell County, according to data produced by the Board of Elections.

Republican candidate for governor, Ed Gillespie, arrives on stage with his wife Cathy as he prepares to deliver a victory speech at his victory party Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Richmond, Va. Gillespie beat State Sen.

Meanwhile, current Lt. Governor Ralph Northam has won the Democratic nomination in Virginia's closely watched race for governor, defeating an insurgent challenger backed by U.S. Sens.

Perriello nonetheless drew major support from the Sanders wing of the party, and coverage of the race often cast it as a fight between the Democratic progressive and centrist wings.

Ralph Northam, Virginia's lieutenant governor, defeated former Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello handily with a lead of more than 10 percentage points.

Virginia and New Jersey are the only states set to elect governors this year, and the contest in the Old Dominion is attracting broad national attention as a possible early referendum on Trump ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. While Gillespie had his stronghold in Fairfax County, Stewart scored big in Loudon County, Prince William County as well as rural central and southwest regions of the state.

Asked if he would support Gillespie in the general election, Smith said: "At most, I will vote for him".

"Initial takeaways are that Northam performed strongly in the Urban Crescent- Northern Virginia, Richmond, and Hampton Roads-and that was all he had to do in the end", says Geoffrey Skelly of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

"Corey did prove he's a more formidable candidate than anyone gave him credit for, but that means nothing if he doesn't use it to help Ed win", Nohe said. Trailing far back in third was Frank Wagner, a Navy veteran and Virginia state senator without the national backing of Gillespie or the populist fervor of Stewart.

You all said that someone who supported our president, somebody who supported President Trump ... somebody who was out financed five-to-one ... somebody who was fighting against the establishment could never win!

But Stewart may face an uphill battle when it comes to pleading his case, as Republicans across the state are hoping to unify after the race proved to be such a nail-biter.

While Gillespie's win is a relief for national Republicans, the far closer than expected result should sound alarm bells for the fall.

Virginia voters picked their parties' nominees for governor, lieutenant governor and dozens of House of Delegates races on Tuesday, plus local contests in some areas.

But even with the state's Republican Party and news organizations of all stripes calling the race for Gillespie, Stewart declared the contest "too close to call" at his Woodbridge victory party Tuesday night.

The Democratic side of primary night saw a huge increase in voter turnout with more than half a million voters heading to the polls in the gubernatorial race.

However, Northam easily defeated Perriello, winning nearly 56 percent of the vote.

Kevin Felty, a Norfolk Republican, said he voted for Gillespie because of his fundraising prowess in what's likely to be a bloody general campaign. Northam faces a primary against former Rep. Tom Perriello.
