The Republican National Committee predicted Tuesday a “red wave” in political victories following Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia’s gubernatorial elections.

The RNC posted a video of Vice President Kamala Harris saying during a campaign visit in Virginia for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe, “What happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.”

Mr. McAuliffe, former governor of Virginia, was trailing Mr. Youngkin with about 94% of the precincts reporting. The Republican, who ran on kitchen table issues, was on the verge of an upset win with 51% of the vote to Mr. McAuliffe’s 48%.

“Virginians have sent a strong message to rebuke Joe Biden, Terry McCAuliffe and the Democrats’ swampy socialist agenda.” Tommy Pigott, RNC spokesperson, said. They elected leaders who will empower parents and keep our communities safe. They backed the Blue and created jobs by electing Glenn Youngkin and Winsome Sears as governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general .

Votes were still being counted.

Still, the RNC views a victory for Virginia as a sign of things to come. It also provides a roadmap for a GOP return in the upcoming elections.

The NRCC currently targets two Democratic House seats in Virginia: Reps. Elaine Luria & Abigail Spanberger. Both were elected in 2018 during the Democrats’ “blue wave,” when their party took the House majority from the GOP and Donald Trump was in the White House.
