Northern Virginia faces a major loss of clout on Capitol Hill as Democratic Rep. James P. Moran Jr. confirmed Wednesday that he will join GOP Rep. Frank R. Wolf in heading for the exits after this term.
The political arm of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce endorsed Terry McAuliffe for Virginia governor Thursday, handing the Democrat a key boost from the business community in the state's largest jurisdiction while undercutting his Republican opponent's most effective line of attack thus far.
"In terms of the priorities of the Northern Virginia business community, Mr. McAuliffe's policy positions and proposals closely align with the Fairfax chamber's legislative agenda," said Jim Corcoran, Fairfax chamber president and CEO and NOVABizPAC trustee.
Mr. Corcoran said Mr. McAuliffe "vocalized his opposition to mandatory project labor agreements and he has vowed to veto any attempt to chip away at Virginia's long-standing right-to- work laws."
