Republican former business executive Glenn Youngkin has won Virginia’s governor’s race, a major political turnabout in a state that had been trending increasingly blue. The win has alarmed national Democrats already nervous about holding their party’s narrow control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections. The 54-year-old Youngkin, a political newcomer, beat Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who served as governor from 2014 to 2018. President Joe Biden won Virginia by a comfortable 10 percentage points last year.Republican Winsome Sears will become the first woman to be Virginia’s attorney general.  And Republican Jason Miyares defeated incumbent   Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring.  Republicans have picked up six seats to take control of the House of Delegates.
