Terry McAuliffe won a close election Tuesday against Republican Ken Cuccinelli, going from favored candidate to governor-elect.

He has a big job ahead of him. Transportation, as always, is in need of attention. The economy is doing OK, but not great. McAuliffe campaigned hard on social issues, such as gay rights and women’s health issues like access to contraception and safe abortion clinics.

And he championed the expansion of Medicaid. And more.

That will require some prioritizing.

So, we’d like to know: What should Terry McAuliffe make as his No. 1 priority to tackle once he’s in office? Tell us in comments below.
