Christie wins in New Jersey, CNN predicts; it's too early to call in Virginia

(CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has won four more years leading the Garden State, CNN projects, defeating Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono in the state's gubernatorial race.

Christie's victory became a forgone conclusion long before polls closed in New Jersey, as public opinion polls for months have indicated the tough-talking Republican headliner was far ahead of his Democratic challenger.

CNN Exit Polls: No gender gap for Christie

(CNN) – Chris Christie's re-election as New Jersey governor was never in doubt.

But the big questions heading into Tuesday's gubernatorial election were how large a victory the high-profile Republican with national aspirations would capture against state Sen. Barbara Buono, his little-known Democratic challenger, and how Christie would perform with voters who tend to cast ballots for Democrats.

CNN exit polls: Virginia governor's race

(CNN) – Polls have closed in Virginia but the race for governor there between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Ken Cuccinelli is too close to call. Here are results of CNN's early exit polls conducted on Tuesday in Virginia:

McAuliffe capturing moderates, women
McAuliffe is doing well with key voting blocs in Virginia. Among the 44% of voters who call themselves moderate, McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli by 28 points (58%-30%). McAuliffe is also benefitting from the gender gap. While men split virtually evenly between the two major party candidates, women back McAuliffe by 16 points (54%-38%). But Cuccinelli is winning among self-described independents by 11 points (47%-36%).

Biden frames Virginia governor's election as race against the tea party

(CNN) – Campaigning for Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic nominee in Virginia's gubernatorial race, Vice President Joe Biden depicted Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli as a puppet of the tea party and framed the race as a referendum on the conservative grassroots movement, one day before voters head to the polls on Election Day.

"I'm not just here for Terry. I'm not just here because I'm a Democrat. I'm here because this race matters well beyond the state of Virginia," Biden said Monday at a campaign event in Annandale, Virginia.

Five things to know about this year's most important election

Richmond, Virginia (CNN) - The Virginia governor's race, billed as the marquee battle of an otherwise anticlimactic 2013 election cycle, is shaping up to be a foregone conclusion.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the longtime political fixer and moneyman, hasn't trailed in a poll since May. Barring a political miracle, Republican Ken Cuccinelli will be delivering a concession speech on Tuesday evening in Richmond.

Obama stumps for McAuliffe in Virginia governor’s race

Arlington, Virginia (CNN) - President Barack Obama sidestepped talking about his signature achievement, health care reform, and instead focused on the politics of the government shutdown in a campaign rally to help Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe get over the finish line in Tuesday's governor's race.

McAuliffe, a best friend of the Clinton family, has been ahead of Republican Ken Cuccinelli, even if marginally, in every poll of the race taken since mid-July. A victory here Tuesday night could provide some cover to the Obama administration, which has been under fire for a month for the botched roll-out of the Affordable Care Act's sign-up website for the insurance exchange system October 1.

NJ voters split over possible Christie 2016 bid

(CNN) - Most New Jersey voters in a new poll want Republican Gov. Chris Christie to serve a second term. But only about half think he should make a White House run and they're split on whether he'd make a good president.

The release on Tuesday of the Quinnipiac University survey comes one week before the gubernatorial election in the Garden State, a contest that Christie is expected to easily win.
