The report comes two days after Republicans swept most races in Virginia: Financier Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s gubernatorial race; Winsome Sears made history as the state’s first female lieutenant governor when she defeated Democrat Hala Ayala; and Jason Miyares made history as the state’s first Latino attorney general with a victory over Democrat incumbent Mark Herring.
