What to watch for in Virginia on election night

Voters head to the polls in Virginia on Tuesday to choose their next governor, and leaders from both parties are holding their collective breath to see who comes out on top in a race as close as any in recent memory.

Republican Glenn Youngkin entered Election Day with a slight lead, edging out Democrat Terry McAuliffe by 1.7 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polling.

But Virginia remains a solidly blue state, and no Republican has won a statewide contest there in more than a decade, giving the GOP reason for pessimism despite the clear momentum Youngkin amassed in the final weeks of the race.

Here’s what to watch heading into Tuesday evening.
