Republican Glenn Youngkin is the projected winner of the Virginia gubernatorial election, while the race for governor of New Jersey remains a dead heat. That's prompting questions about whether Democrats can keep their congressional majority in the 2022 midterms. CBS News' Michael George reports and Joel Benenson, founder of Benenson Strategy Group and a former member of the Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama campaigns, joined CBSN with analysis of Tuesday night's elections.

The president focused part of his speech on tying Youngkin to GOP governors in the South and his relationship with former President Trump. Zach Montellaro, a state politics reporter for Politico, joined CBSN to discuss the campaign.
