Senator Ralph Northam Calls on Governor McDonnell to Reject Senate Republican Power Grab
JOIN ME IN CALLING ON GOVERNOR MCDONNELL TO REJECT THE SENATE REPUBLICANS' UNCONSTITUTIONAL POWER GRAB
"Senate Republicans have taken an unconstitutional action to gerrymander new Senate District lines mid-decade. On a day that should have been reserved for President Obama’s second inauguration and remembering the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., Senate Republican leadership instead took the controversial and divisive action to push forward a radical agenda—an all out war on abortion rights, environmental protection and public education. They couldn’t beat Tim Kaine or President Obama in 2012—so they changed the rules.
I call on Governor McDonnell to reject this divisive action taken by Senate Republicans. If he does not, I will do everything within my power to fully support a law suit to overturn this unconstitutional power grab."
Why is this important?
