Northam will face Republican Ed Gillespie in the general election in November.

Clinton won Virginia, one of the two states with gubernatorial races this year, in the 2016 presidential election. 

Voters' opinions about Trump will be a weighty factor in the election, according a poll released Tuesday by the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.

The survey found that 39 percent of Virginia voters in the poll said Trump will play a role in their choice between Northam and Gillespie, while 28 percent said the president is a major factor. The president, however, was a much stronger factor for Democrats expecting to vote than for Republicans.
