Kaine, who has deep roots in Virginia from years of holding public office, had far surpassed Stewart in fundraising in the race, which the Cook Political Report had rated a “solid” Democratic one.
“THANK YOU, VIRGINIA!” Kaine tweeted shortly after his victory was called. “We have to keep Virginia moving forward and put our country back on the right track. That starts now!”
THANK YOU, VIRGINIA!
In the Senate, I’ll always listen to you. I’ll take your ideas and values to Washington, and keep fighting to solve your problems. We have to keep Virginia moving forward and put our country back on the right track. That starts now! https://t.co/iQ2YKBAVxq

Stewart, the head of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, garnered controversy last year during his bid for the GOP nomination for governor when he pledged to protect Confederate monuments and remove undocumented immigrants residing in the state.
In a race that saw Republican strategists worried that Stewart’s controversial profile could stymie GOP voter turnout, Kaine’s swift victory could bode well for Democrats as polls close across the nation.
