Democrats will take control of Senate in Virginia, CNN projects

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.
