Lots easier to vote for something when you know it's getting vetoed

Bob McDonnell tried this with a 68-32 Republican House & an R majority in the Senate - it failed in both chambers - where's the history in these stories? @VASenateDems @VaBlackCaucus @bluevirginia @vaplan2018 @LVozzella @MelLeonor_ richmond.com/news/state-and…

More recently it was McAuliffe who vetoed it in 2017 after it passed both chambers. Educate us all with more tweets please.

Dem Minority Leader Filler-Corn: "Yesterday, mister speaker, you took an oath, an oath to serve all Virginians.
"Yesterday, your words on Twitter, written during the governor's speech, did not live up to that oath."
Replying to @MelLeonor_
Filler-Corn: "Your comments yesterday would have been offensive in any private or public place in [Virginia]. But to believe that it was acceptable to do it from ... this seat of power has even greater ramifications for the commonwealth."

Ralph Northam is leaving office as his own lost cause, condescendingly lecturing us all from some assumed moral high ground because he read the book “Roots” and then went on a non-stop reconciliation tour. Saturday can’t come fast enough.

What a sad comment from someone who is supposed to have the most distinguished role on Capitol Square. May you hope to have half the moral clarity, compassion, and character of Ralph Northam.
 
Virginia House Speaker Todd Gilbert's reaction to Northam's last state of the commonwealth address. Much more pointed that the formal GOP reaction + what seems like a reference to Confederate monument removals?

Republican Todd Gilbert will lead the chamber as speaker, the second speaker from Shenandoah.
Replying to @MelLeonor_
Former House Speaker Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, won’t be back in the chamber this year. His portrait will hang in the House. Surrounded by family, Cox urged lawmakers to value every day here as a great privilege.
 
And now we break for the weather...

Gov. Northam's administration is drafting an emergency order ahead of Sunday's expected winter storm that the new Youngkin administration can deploy this weekend if needed.

The storm is expected to bring snow and sleet across the state.

No clear plans on Virginia's marijuana legalization. Incoming Speaker Gilbert: "I don't think there's any guarantee either way about how we're going to proceed. I think we need to talk with the Senate obviously, we need to see where the governor is on this. It's a mess."

Northam calls the situation the "perfect storm." "This was an incredibly unusual event." Says many drivers were probably from out of state and "missed the clear and consistent message" to stay off the roads.
