Things are still very tight on the GOP side. Gillespie is up in NOVA and Richmond, but Stewart is doing well in the rural areas, especially the Shenandoah valley.

Chesterfield County, which is in suburban Richmond, has Gillespie slightly up. Stewart is cleaning up in the southwest.

Race Preview

Republicans in Virginia are attempting to win back the governor’s mansion this year. Ed Gillespie has been the clear front runner, leading in virtually every poll. His closest rival is Corey Stewart, Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, who has run a “Trump style” populist campaign. The last piece of the puzzle is State Senator Frank Wagner, who hails from the Tidewater area. If the polls are correct, Gillespie should count on strong numbers in Richmond and Northern Virginia, and a decent showing in Tidewater if not an outright win there. If the polling is off, watch Chesterfield County, one of the first to report in the state. The southern suburbs of Richmond should be Gillespie turf, but a narrow lead there could be a sign of a longer night than expected.
