Watch live as Republican Glenn Youngkin leads Virginia governor race

Watch the election night party for Republican Glenn Youngkin after polls closed in the race for the next governor of Virginia.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe has sought a return to the office he left four years ago in a tight race against business executive Mr Youngkin.

With roughly 60 per cent of the votes tallied, elections analysts predict the Republican will win the race, a serious blow for the Democratic administration of President Joe Biden. Both parties are looking at the race for clues about how next year’s midterm elections might pan out.
