A Democrat has not won Virginia in the presidential race since LBJ carried the state in 1964. That held true in 2000 as Bush-Cheney bested Gore-Lieberman with a plurality of 220,200 votes (8.03 percentage points). Bush won in eight of the state's congressional districts, while Gore won in three (3rd, 8th and 11th).
