Special Election: Another loss for Virginia GOP

Democrat Jennifer Wexton won Tuesday's special election for the 33rd State Senate seat vacated when Democrat Mark Herring became attorney general. This could potentially turn control of the state senate over to Democrats if they retain the lead after a recount of the Hampton Roads area seat formerly held by now-Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam.

This is the latest in a string of losses for the Republican Party of Virginia which has left all statewide offices in the hands of Democrats -- governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and both U.S. senators -- plus tonight's loss. Is it time to redraw the play book?
