Fox Projects Terry McAuliffe Winner In Virginia Gubernatorial Race

Fox News projects Democrat Terry McAuliffe is the winner of the Virginia gubernatorial race, defeating Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli in a surprisingly close victory.

The closely watched raced pitted a Tea Party-backed Republican and an establishment Democrat locked in an expensive, surprisingly close election that the media projected early on would be a huge Democratic win.

Cuccinelli, trailing late by single digits, tried unsuccessfully to use voter dissatisfaction with ObamaCare to stage a come-from-behind victory over the better-funded McAuliffe, who was able to flood TV and radio airwaves with negative ads from practically start to finish.

Cuccinelli is the state attorney general who helped lead the legal charge against ObamaCare. McAuliffe is a Clinton family confidant and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
