Elected Governor

George Allen
Republican

Barred from seeking a second term due to Virginia's unusual term limits, incumbent Democratic Governor L. Douglas Wilder was replaced by Republican nominee and former U.S. Congressman George Allen. Allen defeated longtime Attorney General of Virginia Mary Sue Terry, the Democratic nominee in a landslide, which ended 12 consecutive years of Democratic control of the Governor's Mansion.
