THE POST’S VIRGINIA HOUSE ENDORSEMENTS

Washington Post Editorial (Metered Paywall - 3 articles a month)

REPUBLICANS HOLD a 59-seat majority in Virginia’s House of Delegates. Now, owing partly to their control of a baldly partisan redistricting process, swing districts across the state have been transformed into safe ones for the GOP. If the result is to further entrench increasingly hard-line, anti-tax, socially conservative Republicans in the legislature’s lower house, many Northern Virginians are likely to be unhappy.

By ANITA KUMAR, Washington Post (Metered Paywall - 3 articles a month)

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner is helping Democratic candidates for the General Assembly raise some much-needed cash in their battle to keep control of the state Senate. The popular former governor, who is finishing a whirlwind tour of the state during Congress’s August recess, has managed to add a number of fundraising events to his eight-day, 39-event schedule. On Friday, he will headline a lunchtime fundraiser for Sen. John Edwards (Roanoke). On Saturday, he will attend both a meet-and-greet for Sen. Phil Puckett and Vern Presley, who is running against Del. Will Morefield (R), in Tazewell, and a fundraiser for John Lamie, vying to replace Sen. William Wampler (Bistol) in Abingdon.
