No matter how you slice it – it was a blue night for Virginia, including the Board of Supervisors races in Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun counties.
In Fairfax, Democrat Jeff McKay was re-elected as chair with 67 percent of the vote.
Democrat Phyllis Randall won a third term in Loudoun with the plurality vote of 48 percent.
In Prince William, newcomer Democrat Deshundra Jefferson beat Republican Supervisor Jeanine Lawson for the chair position with 51 percent of the vote. This came after Jefferson pulled off an upset by winning the Democratic primary in June, knocking incumbent Ann Wheeler off the November ballot.
Additionally, the Virginia General Assembly trended blue with Democrats retaining control of the Senate and regaining control of the House, both by the slimmest of margins.
