Nine candidates are seeking their party’s nominations for Lieutenant Governor this year. The first in our profile formerly served as state Delegate and state Senator and is one of only two women to run for statewide office during this nominating season, Jeannemarie Davis.
The second in this first part of our series is former Army Colonel and long-time Delegate, Scott Lingamfelter.
Regardless of the legal outcome, the issues surrounding a former chef from the governor’s mansion and gifts from the CEO of a company called Star Scientific may take a political toll on the state’s top Republicans.
Virginia Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte could play an outsized role in this year’s immigration debate.
At 844 pages, the bipartisan immigration reform bill in the Senate is one of those whoppers that’s easy to decry on the campaign trail. You won’t be seeing anything like that coming out of the House if Chairman Goodlatte has anything to say about it. He wants his Judiciary Committee to examine immigration one subsection at a time. He says speed isn’t his concern.
