WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has phoned Terry McAuliffe, winning candidates in the Virginia governor's race, as well as the winners in mayoral races in New York City and Boston. The White House says Obama phoned McAuliffe, New York Mayor-elect Bill De Blasio and Boston Mayor-elect Martin Walsh, all Democrats, on Tuesday night.

The White House says he congratulated each of them on their election victories and vowed to work with them in the months ahead to expand economic opportunity for middle-class families in their communities.
