The end-of-year holiday season often inspires Washingtonians to donate time, money or talents to their communities. Kojo explores different opportunities to give back in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
One year after Donald Trump was elected president, Virginia Democrats held onto the state’s governor’s seat with Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam besting Republican Ed Gillespie. The win was a landmark victory for Democrats in a statewide referendum against President Trump. The party also succeeded in the lieutenant governor, attorney general races, and managed to overturn several long-held GOP delegate seats. Kojo analyzes key moments out of this year’s race and takeaways from local contests that caught the attention of the entire country.
