Democratic candidates swept the three major statewide elections in Virginia on Tuesday, signaling a boon for the party after a series of losses in House races earlier this year. Justin Fairfax (D) edged out state Sen. Jill Vogel (R) in Virginia's lieutenant gubernatorial race on Tuesday, while  Democratic state Attorney General Mark Herring held onto his office, according to The Washington Post\. The wins add to a mounting tally for Democrats in the commonwealth as the party celebrated Ralph Northam's victory in the gubernatorial election.  With about 95 percent of precincts reporting, Fairfax was expected to narrowly beat Vogel and Herring was comfortably ahead of Republican John Adams, according to The Post.
