Virginians also favored Democrats for lieutenant governor, attorney general, and erased the GOP's 66-34 advantage in the state Legislature.

"It's very difficult for any Republican candidate to distance themselves from Trump", said Michael McDonald, an expert on voter turnout at the University of Florida.

The tweet included a photograph apparently taken aboard Air Force One, showing Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and several aides - White House communications director Hope Hicks, senior policy advisor Stephen Miller and social media director Dan Scavino - giving thumbs-up signs.

The race proved one of the most divisive of modern times, and Clinton fanned those flames two months before the election in one of her most controversial speeches of the campaign. Northam defeated Republican candidate Ed Gillespie.

Clinton's stop in Milwaukee comes amid revelations of a contemplated effort by her party to replace her as the Democratic nominee last year. However, Parks feels the numbers should have been reversed.

Trump's response, to blame Gillespie, was the latest example of how he responds to reality with yet more denial.

Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist to President Donald Trump, speaks at the Macomb County Republican Party dinner in Warren, Mich., Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017.

Gillespie had adopted some of Trump's hardline positions but had avoided campaigning with the unpopular president. "He's had some defeats", Bannon said of Trump.
