Election 2013: The fate and future of two parties on display in New Jersey and Virginia
Question of the Day
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie marched toward a landslide re-election victory Tuesday and began setting his sights on 2016 by insisting he was a true conservative.
Some Republicans watching the final stages of the governor’s race say a decisive Christie win will send a message to the national party that the GOP can triumph without catering to the far right.
In Virginia, Democrats pressed to sweep a traditionally red state’s top three ticket spots on the coattails of former Clinton money man Terry McAuliffe’s campaign for governor.
McAuliffe was leading by 7 points in exit polling, according to multiple reports.
President Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden and former President Bill Clinton all stumped for Mr. McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman.
Mr. Cuccinelli is the state’s attorney general from the libertarian wing of Virginia’s Republican Party.
He turned to the likes of Sens. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio in hopes of inspiring tea party supporters.
He spent much of Tuesday phoning voters in an attempt to overcome Mr. McAuliife’s lead in pre-voting polls.
