The deeply unpopular Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin — who Trump rallied for, begging voters not to humiliate him by letting him lose — lost to Attorney General Andy Beshear, whose father, as a former governor, expanded Medicaid under the ACA. As governor, Bevin pushed for cuts to health care and also tried to strip teachers of their pensions. And people fought back.

If that loss wasn’t humiliating enough for Trump, remember Juli Briskman? She was the Virginia cyclist who famously gave Trump’s motorcade the bird in 2017 and lost her job for it. She’s now an elected official.

Hers was one of scores of wins in Virginia, as Democrats flipped the Senate and will now fully control the state government. Gov. Ralph Northam, who resisted calls to resign over a blackface controversy, now has a window to push through sweeping progressive change in the state. Not in spite of that scandal but precisely because of it, he’ll be under intense pressure to deliver on his pledge to focus the remainder of his term on “racial equity.” One of the first battles is likely to involve a progressive black lawmakerLashrecse Aird, who is looking to take over leadership of the House of Delegates from her more moderate colleague Eileen Filler-Corn. Northam will feel pressure to back Aird, even as his private sympathies may lie with Filler-Corn.
