Ralph Northam wins Democratic nod for governor in Virginia primary

Ralph Northam wins Democratic nod for governor in Virginia primary

Voters are also choosing candidates for lieutenant governor and several state House seats.

Updated | The Virginia gubernatorial race is proving to be a fascinating proxy for national trends as an ally of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren was defeated on Tuesday, and a Trump-style nationalist came close to defeating the mainstream, better financed Republican front runner.

The three-way Republican primary remained too close to call, with ardent Trump supporter Corey Stewart doing surprising well against former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie.

Perriello, who served from 2008 to 2010, is running as a liberal crusader supported by Sen.

By far, the most closely watched races will be between the five candidates running to be Virginia's next governor. In November, she will Justin Fairfax, an attorney from northern Virginia, who won the Democratic nomination.

The Lyft investment was included as part of the company's most recent round of fundraising , which closed in April. A week ago, Lyft announced it was teaming up with Cambridge, Mass. -based self-driving auto startup nuTonomy .

Some Democrats said they were motivated by Trump's presidency to vote Tuesday. "Growing up there was no question that this law and order dystopic language was very appealing there, but I think people are beyond that".

Democrats will likely end primary day in good shape for November.

Campaigning for statewide office, most Democratic candidates have typically ignored the deep red Appalachian corner of the state where Trump won numerous counties by 70% margins. New Jersey had its gubernatorial primary last week, and establishment candidates in both parties won easily.

Perriello pledged in his concession speech to help Northam and said his campaign had shown that a "movement" is "rising up". Northam supports the pipeline project and is seen as more moderate-he voted for George W. Bush for president, twice.

"It has made me realize how important local politics has become, considering I don't really feel like I have a whole lot of control in federal politics at the moment", Barrows said.

The 57-year-old Northam has stuck to the more traditional way of campaigning, emphasizing the deep support he enjoys from every statewide Democratic official and state legislator.

"To be honest, I'm happy with either one but feel like Ralph has the experience", Judy Helmich said.

Perriello ratcheted up attacks on Trump ahead of Tuesday's vote, calling the primary the "firewall against the hate and bigotry of the administration". A Perriello triumph, however, could signal the evolution of the party and the potency of a national message-and that backers of both Sanders and Clinton have found at least one candidate to agree on.

Northam, a well-liked pediatric neurologist, had a head start on the trail and in money raised.
