Democrats will win at least 21 seats in the Virginia state Senate, taking control of the chamber, CNN projects.
Democrats have poured a record-breaking amount of money into the state Legislature races. Virginia has long been a bellwether for national wins but has drifted left in recent years.
Some background: Republicans controlled the state Senate with 20 seats to Democrats’ 19. Republicans have held on to the Senate since 2014 and House since 1999 by slim margins.
