Yes, there are three 2021 governors races on the schedule, but only two of them would normally be there.
With all due respect to the California recall – which, we promise, will get plenty of attention from us in the next month – our first obligation is to cover the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial races. These are two Democratic seats, one of which is open and the other featuring a governor standing for re-election. How clear is the path for Democrats to hold both seats, or are the Republicans poised for a breakthrough in either state?
We take a look at the facts of the elections and the candidates standing in each.
Election Day in New Jersey and the Commonwealth of Virginia is November 2, 2021.
