Democrat Michael Feggans has defeated GOP Del. Karen Greenhalgh in Virginia’s HD-97

This gives Democrats at least 51 seats in the House of Delegates for a majority.

Republicans hold a slim edge in the House of Delegates and are looking to win the Senate and keep the House to give Youngkin the consolidated control he needs to enact his conservative agenda, including permanent tax cuts and a push for a 15-week ban on abortion, with exceptions. Such a victory could raise the governor’s national profile and energize a possible last-minute bid for the White House, political analysts say.

The College of William & Mary (officially The College of William and Mary in Virginia, abbreviated as W&M is a public research university in Williamsburg, Virginia. Founded in 1693 under a royal charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II, it is the second-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and the ninth-oldest in the English-speaking world. It is classified among "R2: Doctoral Universities – High Research Activity". In his 1985 book Public Ivies: A Guide to America's Best Public Undergraduate Colleges and Universities, Richard Moll included William & Mary as one of the original eight "Public Ivies".

On Tuesday morning, Youngkin called on voters to extend Republicans’ “license to lead.”

“Send me a team that will work with me in Richmond, not against me, and we will bring Virginia to new heights,” he said in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Candidates for both parties spent the run-up to Election Day hosting last-minute get-out-the-vote rallies and canvasses.

Democrats brought in surrogates including Maryland Gov. Wes Moore; gun control activist David Hogg, a Florida high school mass shooting survivor; and former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who joined Senate President Pro Tempore Louise Lucas for a northern Virginia appearance.

President Joe Biden, who won Virginia in 2020 by 10 percentage points and campaigned against Youngkin in the state in 2021, did not appear in person, but signed off on a fundraising email and endorsements.

Roem, 39, defeated Bill Woolf, a Fairfax County police detective, according to unofficial results. She celebrated the win on social media Tuesday night.

“To the people of western Prince William County, the City of Manassas Park and the City of Manassas: I’m so grateful to continue serving my lifelong home community, now in the state Senate,” Roem wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Thank you so, so much. It’s time to get back to work!”
