As expected, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe easily won the Democratic nomination in yesterday’s Virginia primary with a strong 62.3% victory against four opponents and setting him on course to face former international investment hedge fund CEO Glenn Youngkin (R). The state’s one-term gubernatorial limit prohibits Governors from seeking re-election, hence Mr. McAuliffe’s bid for a second term after leaving office was delayed four years. He becomes the early favorite in the general election, but a competitive campaign with Mr. Youngkin, who is capable of funding his own campaign, appears probable.
