Elections reveal much more than who won and lost. Recently, the Huffington Post published an article about the implications of the 2013 Virginia Gubernatorial race.
Virginia receives political attention because of its status as a swing-state. The Virginia gubernatorial race is quickly developing into a hotly contested war of words and ideas. Political experts are predicting that if Republicans lose in Virginia, there is a slim chance of them retaining the majority.

Losing two consecutive national elections has put pressure on Republicans to retain majority in the House. Typically, there tends to be lower voter turnout for state-held elections compared to national elections. The possible implications for this election are grave enough to attract more voters than usual to the polls in Virginia.
