Terry McAuliffe Defeats Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia Governor’s Race

Democrat Terry McAuliffe has defeated Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the race to become the next governor of Virginia in the seat currently occupied by Republican Bob McDonnell. Fox News was the first to call the race for McAuliffe.

The race got quite a bit of national attention for Cuccinelli’s social conservative views, as well as disgust on both sides with the candidates voters got to choose from. This culminated in The Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Charlottesville Daily Progress endorsing “none of the above.”

That sentiment carried on throughout the campaign, culminating in The Daily Show comparing the two candidates on Monday night to “pond scum” and “dog poop.”
