Virginia Democrats and gay rights advocates are sharply criticizing Gov. Terry McAuliffe's pick to be the next chairman of the state party, saying Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones' position on same-sex marriage is in direct conflict with progress the party has made and should disqualify him as a candidate.
A Will County jury has convicted a Chicago man of first-degree murder in the slaying of a man who was beaten to death with a lamp and then robbed in 2011.
Democrat Terry McAuliffe brazenly inserted himself into the sensitive debate over Virginia's heritage, condemning the flying of a Confederate flag and renewing a cultural debate that has ensnared governors of both parties for decades.
Having the Redskins training camp in town is a big deal. That makes Richmond a big deal, which is something it has sought to become for a long time.
While Redskins fans living near Redskins Park in Ashburn, where the team has held its training camp for several years, are dismayed that the team has moved further south, the team has heard from plenty of people further south in Norfolk and North Carolina delighted to now live closer to the site.
Mr. Jones, a Democrat, said he's not looking to re-fight old battles and is not interested in symbols that divide Richmond.
"I'm interested in promoting symbols that unite people and would rather rally around the American flag than one that divides so many in our city," he said. "I encourage all Richmonders to do the same."
