McAuliffe Elected VA Governor

Posted: Updated:

Democrat Terry McAuliffe has been elected the governor of Virginia.

McAuliffe beat out Ken Cuccinelli in a close race on Tuesday night.

Voter turnout was expected to be low as the campaign for the governor's seat in the commonwealth neared its end.    

The campaign's negative tilt turned many voters off. 

Strategists in both parties predicted the outcome would be decided by just a few thousand votes.
