Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe
Virginia Republicans are being accused of bribing off a Democratic state senator by offering he and his daughter prestigious jobs in exchange for his resignation – giving the GOP control of the chamber and the ability to strike down Medicaid expansion through the Affordable Care Act.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring says he will not defend the gay marriage ban against federal lawsuits that challenge it.
Two days after taking the oath of office, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has emphasized the need to expand Medicaid eligibility in a speech to the state’s General Assembly.
