    E.W. Jackson 'declaring war' on Obama, Kaine for 'ignoring Constitution' For months, former Sen. George Allen has been the prohibitive favorite to win the Republican nomination in his quest to win back the U.S. Senate seat he lost to Jim Webb six years ago. There have been no new public polls showing a major shift in the race but GOP hopeful E.W. Jackson says voters in the commonwealth can expect a shocking result next Tuesday. Jackson says internal polling gives him confidence that he will not only challenge Allen but score the biggest upset to date in the 2012 cycle....

    Three of the four candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Virginia agree that efforts to repeal the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – which authorizes the direct election of senators – are impractical at best. In post-debate interviews in Roanoke on Saturday, where all four candidates participated in a forum sponsored by the Republican Party of Virginia, the candidates expressed their views on the 17th Amendment in response to questions posed by the Charlottesville Libertarian Examiner. ‘Repeal Amendment’ alternative Jamie Radtke said that she does not think the repeal efforts are viable, “so I’ve been...

Neither the vote in the state House of Delegates nor the state Senate was even close: the House approved the measure 89-7 and the Senate followed suit later in the day voting 36-1 to make HB 1160 the law in Virginia.

Del. Charniele Herring, D-Alexandria, called it “reckless and divisive” and “an abhorrent...

The state's new Republican attorney general says he is assembling a legal team with an eye to challenging the federal government in court. And Virginia's newly elected Republican governor said he plans to engage actively in a national conversation about limiting Washington's power.

    Delegate Robert G. Marshall yesterday criticized fellow Prince William County Republicans for supporting former Gov. James S. Gilmore III's U.S. Senate bid, saying they should stop "fooling" their conservative base and come clean about Mr. Gilmore's stance on abortion. "I don't know how they can blink at 700,000 abortions and still say he supports the sanctity of life," Mr. Marshall said of Delegates Scott Lingamfelter and Jeffrey M. Frederick's endorsements of Mr. Gilmore despite his belief government should not intrude during the first eight weeks of pregnancy. "That's the tipping point for me."

    Virginia Del. Bob Marshall, the Republican from Prince William County who is one of the last great crusaders in the General Assembly, follows his conscience, no matter how unpopular or inconvenient the results. Whether he's seeking to restrict abortion in any possible way or trying to restrict development that might damage the environment, he's fine with ticking off left or right. In fact, he relishes the idea. So it came as no surprise that it was Marshall who tossed a pipe bomb into the delicate structure that housed Virginia's multibillion-dollar transportation compromise. And when he won a total victory in...

Marshall's role as the lead challenger in the lawsuit that overturned several local taxes that were part of Virginia's landmark transportation package Friday has propelled him into the spotlight. But even before then, the 63-year-old policy consultant was quietly amassing support, from county committee chairmen in rural parts of the state to Northern Virginia...

    Can marriage-amendment foes succeed at the polls? The batting average of conservatives who have been pushing state marriage amendments isn't bad - try 19 for 19 and counting. But a progressive coalition thinks that it has a shot at defeating the 20th proposed state-constitutional amendment - which will be on the ballot in Virginia in November. "There is a very real chance that we might be able to defeat this," said Joshua Israel, the president of Virginia Partisans Gay and Lesbian Democratic Club, which is involved in the Commonwealth Coalition effort to defeat the amendment that would define marriage in...
