State Senator Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) has won the election in Virginia's 10th district, unseating incumbent Republican congresswoman Barbara Comstock.
Why it matters: Comstock is the first incumbent of the night to lose in a House election, but she was considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans all cycle long and the NRCC was the only major GOP group to spend in her favor this cycle.
