Virginia Elections

Should elections be determined but the luck of the draw? That’s what happened last year, and one lawmaker wants to make sure it never happens again.

State Senator Frank Wagner is one of three Republicans running for governor in Virginia.  He doesn’t have the money or national party connections of Ed Gillespie, and he’s not as controversial as Corey Stewart, but he told reporter Sandy Hausman that he hopes voters will recognize more than 20 years in the state legislature as a plus - and agree that it might be time to raise the gas tax in Virginia.

Today we hear from Ed Gillespie, former chairman of the Republican National Committee. Gillespie is one of three Republicans vying to replace Democrat Terry McAuliffe. Before a campaign event in Richmond, Gillespie sat down with reporter Mallory Noe-Payne. He laid out his plan to strengthen Virginia’s economy, beginning with a tax cut to individuals and small businesses.
