What other statewide elected offices the Democrats in VA and GA occupies besides the 2 US Senate seats?

VA currently has a Republican Governor(Youngkin-R),Republican Lt Governor(Sears-R),and Attorney General(Miyares-R).
GA currently has a Republican Governor(Kemp-R),Republican Lt Governor(Jones-R),Republican Secretary of State(Raffensberger-R), Republican Attorney General(Carr-R), the State School Superintendent, Agricultural Commisioner, Insurance Commissioner, Labor Commissioner, and the Public Service Commissioners are Republican.

Democrats will win back the VA Governorship in 2025(Spanberger-D) along with the Lt Governorship and Attorney General’s office. This year they will have majority control of the Senate and House of Delegates.

Democrats need to gain 7 seats in the GA state senate and 14 seats in the GA state house to be in the majority.

In NC- Democrats currently hold the Governorship(Cooper-D),Attorney General’s office(Stein-D), Secretary of State(Marshall-D) and Auditor(Wood-D). Let’s hope the Democrats hold onto the Governorship(Stein-D) and the Attorney General’s office(Jackson-D) plus win back the Lt Governorship, Treasurer, Agricultural, Insurance, Labor, and Public Insurance’s office. Democrats need to gain 6 seats in the NC state senate and 13 seats in the NC state house.

Democrats need to gain 5 seats to regain control of the FL state senate and 14 seats to regain control of the FL state house.
Democrats might win back the FL US Senate seat(Mucarsel Powell-D).

Democrats need to gain 4 seats to regain control of the TX state senate and 12 states to regain control of the TX state house.
Democrats might win back the TX US Senate seat(Allred-D).

Could the Democrats hold onto the KY Governorship and Lt Governorship? Jacqueline Coleman-D

How would we rate the 2026 US Senate races in GA(Ossoff-D vs Kemp-R),NC(Tillis-R vs Cooper-D) and VA(Warner-D vs Youngkin-R)?

VA is Likely Democratic.
NC is Tossup
GA is Tossup.

NC is the 3rd southern state Biden could win in 2024.
