A blue surge in Virginia elections and across the nation

Hosted by

Last night saw the first major statewide elections since Donald Trump became President one year ago.  In New Jersey, and especially in Virginia, Democrats scored big victories.  Even some Republicans are saying the difference was President Trump.  Virginia Republican Congressman Scott Taylor called the results a referendum on Trump. House Speaker Paul Ryan says last night's defeats put more pressure on the GOP. "We've got to deliver." Kyle Kondik, managing editor for Sabato's Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia's Center for Politics looks at the Democratic sweep and what it portends for midterm elections.
