Democrats on Tuesday roared back, claiming big victories in races up and down the ballot and across the country.
Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) won the Virginia governorship by a wider-than-expected margin. Democrat Justin Fairfax won the lieutenant governor's office, becoming only the second African-American to win a statewide post in Virginia since Reconstruction.
 
In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy (D) easily won the race to replace deeply unpopular Gov. Chris Christie (R), cementing Democratic control in the state.
