Washington, D.C. (November 6, 2018) –  The winners and losers are becoming clearer tonight as voters make their choices known in the 2018 mid-term elections.  As expected, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser holds on to her seat, as does Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.  Angela Alsobrooks makes history in Prince George’s County Maryland becoming that county’s first elected female County Executive.  In Virginia, that bitter race between Jennifer Wexton and Barbara Comstock is over with Wexton beating out the two-term republican.

All eyes remain on those governors’ races in Georgia and Florida.  Even in Washington, D.C. there’s a huge watch party underway for Andrew Gillum who is hoping to make history as the first Black Governor of Florida.  WHUR’s Digital Reporter Candice Adkins is in place where Gillum supporters are holding out hope.
