AP Calls It For Warner

Per the AP:

Associated Press Writer
McLEAN, Va. (AP) – Democrat Mark Warner has defeated his fellow
ex-governor Jim Gilmore for a Republican-held Senate seat in
Virginia. The win gives Democrats control of both of Virginia’s
Senate seats for the first time since 1970.
Tuesday’s matchup pitted governors with sharply different styles
and records. Warner held huge leads in polls throughout the race
and Gilmore never gained traction.
Warner will succeed John Warner, who is retiring after a 30-year
Senate career. The two are not related.
The call was based on an analysis of voter interviews conducted
for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky
International.
