Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin has expressed disappointment with election results that allowed Democrats to take control of both the Virginia House and Senate, but pledged to work with the party’s new legislative majority on bipartisan priorities. Youngkin struck an optimistic tone as he told reporters gathered at the foot of the Capitol steps in Richmond Wednesday that the resulting narrow divide in each chamber underscored Virginia’s history of alternating between Democratic and Republican control. Democrats will have narrow majorities in both chambers come January. Only one race, a House district that won’t impact the majority, was outstanding Wednesday.
