Governor McAuliffe set this special session to deal with the court mandated dateline for providing a Congressional redistricting plan in and around the 3rd Congressional District. There is a ripple effect and regardless of whose plan is adopted many districts will be affected.
True to form the Virginia Republicans are in a snit … McAuliffe is a yankee, a Democrat, and he dares to breathe. They are focused on firing Justice Jane Roush from the Virginia Supreme Court. She was a recess appointment by the Governor.
It is easy to discern that Democrats govern … Republicans squabble and obstruct.
