None of this is correct.

Virginia has elected a Democratic governor the past two times -- in 2017 (Northam) and 2013 (McAuliffe). In fact, Democrats have held the governorship for four of the past five terms and seven of the past 10, which goes back almost 40 years.

The House of Delegates has been controlled by Republicans since 1999 and didn't flip until 2019.

The Senate has also been controlled by Republicans since 1999 with two exceptions: 2007-10 was Democratic and 2011-14 was evenly split, then the Senate went back to Republicans in 2015.
