RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam says Democratic gains in this week's elections were largely powered by voters who wanted commonsense gun laws.

Northam said at a cabinet meeting Wednesday morning that he's going to push for the same gun safety laws he proposed at a special session earlier this year called in response to a mass shooting in Virginia Beach.

The governor noted that Republicans adjourned that session after less than 90 minutes "with no results."

Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran says it's going to be "a new day."
