The Left says wins in Virginia, New Jersey are the beginning of the end of Trump 

A victory in Virginia and one in New Jersey give Democrats something to rally around. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the wins.

From CNN: The end of Trump’s brand of politics started Tuesday night in Virginia.

2. A huge night for Virginia Democrats
Richmond.com: Democrats made historic strides in Tuesday’s elections.

3. Trump was on the ballot in Virginia. He lost.
The Washington Post: One year after his victory, Trump was on Virginians’ minds, and they voted him down.
