“Governing Virginia after the November 2015 elections isn’t going to get any easier. The “Washington-ization” of Richmond, where the highly combative politics found in the nation’s capital have replaced the centrist compromising that once defined the Old Dominion, is here to stay.”

“While it is too early to say which party will win control of the Virginia Senate, at the moment in Republican hands by virtue of a 21-19 majority, what is clear is that come 2016 Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe will face implacable opposition on most of his policy priorities from the large Republican majority that will remain in control of the House of Delegates after this fall’s contests.”
