(NewsNation) — Republican challenger Jen Kiggans, a state senator, defeated Democratic incumbent Elaine Luria for Virginia’s hotly contested 2nd District congressional seat, according to NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ.
Virginia’s midterm U.S. House races were seen as an “early sign” of the GOP’s ability to flip power to their side — and perhaps an omen for the next presidential election.
On Tuesday, 470 seats in the U.S. Congress – 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats – are up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden`s remaining years in office.
Early voting in Virginia started on Sept. 23. Polls for in-person voting open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
