Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer is being mentioned on some national news sites after a tweet he sent out on Election Day.

Polling locations around Virginia were still taking in ballots Tuesday, November 7, when the Democratic mayor tweeted out:

As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, November 8, that message had been retweeted roughly 1,400 times and liked by 6,800 people. The Hill and The Independent wrote about Signer's Twitter post.

After it was announced that Ralph Northam (D) was declared the winner over Republican Ed Gillespie, Signer tweeted:

For comparison, that tweet has so far been liked 157 times and has been retweeted 35 times.

“The results were very clear. They rejected it soundly, and they elected resoundingly a very progressive slate of not just the governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, but dozens of House of Delegates members,” Signer said.

President Trump had sent a number of tweets of his own campaigning for Gillespie, then all but disavowed the candidate following the loss:

Approximately 71,000 Twitter users have so far liked the president's response, while around 17,000 have retweeted it.
