Barbara Comstock is first Republican to lose her seat in Congress


Virginia voters continue to abandon the GOP.

In the first House flip of the night, Democrat Jennifer Wexton has easily defeated Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA).

The Virginia Republican has long been seen as highly vulnerable. As the GOP under Trump lurched to the far right, Virginia, and particularly college-educated voters in the suburbs, moved to the left.

Comstock's lopsided loss, combined with Sen. Tim Kaine's easy reelection today, only adds to the GOP's woes in the Commonwealth.
