Abigail Spanberger Shocks Brat in Virginia.

Ex CIA operations officer wins hotly contested Congressional race.

'Abigail Spanberger has won in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. As of 10:20 PM EST, Abigail Spanberger (D) has 49.7% of the vote and is leading challenger Dave Brat (R) by 2000 votes with 98.2% of 228 precincts reporting. Although the election was close, 71 Republic expects Spanberger to claim victory by the end of the night.

In one of the biggest upsets of the 2018 Midterm Elections, former CIA Operations Officer Abigail Spanberger has beaten Dave Brat and wrestled control of Virginia’s 7th District from the Republicans. Brat had been a two-term incumbent and was expected by many to easily handle the political newcomer.'>>>

15. Would have been nice to win the House of Delegates there.

But with a Democratic Governor and Democratic AG in place through 2021, redistricting can be made fairer.

3. Wow

Didn't some networks call this for Brat earlier? Or am I drunk. Nevermind I already know I'm drunk.

10. Great news. Knocks out an extremist.

It's crazy that someone like Brat can get so many votes, but this is a crazy country. Congrats to Abigail.

12. After that spanking she gave him in her last debate summation, it's not surprising.

It shouldn't have been this close.

21. My district and such a long time to get someone to represent me.

Our household gave her 4 votes. At least we all made a difference, finally.
