Democrats win NY City and Virginia polls

International: Democrats have won key elections in New York City and the state of Virginia, in the first major round of polls since President Obama's re-election in 2012.

Preliminary results show Bill de Blasio will replace three-term Mayor Michael Bloomberg to become the first Democrat leading New York in two decades.

In Virginia, Terry McAuliffe beat Republican Ken Cuccinelli in a very close race for the governor's seat.

Republican Chris Christie was easily re-elected governor of New Jersey.

Tuesday's races are seen as an early test of both parties' strengths ahead of next year's congressional mid-term elections. BBC
