Going into Election Day, Democrat Mark Warner was considered a heavy favorite to prevail over Ed Gillespie, a Republican, in Virginia’s U.S. Senate race. Early returns, however, are showing a closer-than-expected race.

At the moment, with about 88 percent of precincts reporting, Gillespie reportedly leads Warner by three percentage points. However, many precincts in liberal-leaning Northern Virginia have yet to report results. At this point, Warner must still be considered the favorite, but the outcome will likely be very close.

Keep an eye on this race.


Still razor thin:


Warner has taken a narrow lead.
