Washington Post Laments Republican State Senate Majority

In an article that reads more like an editorial, the Washington Post reports that Virginia Republicans took over as the majority in the Virginia Senate yesterday.
By day’s end, the GOP acquired greater power through a raft of rule changes that not only mean they chair all committees but also allows them to have greater say over school funding, transportation and social issues, among others. Republicans now have the votes to approve legislation that would limit abortions and ease gun laws, which have been previously blocked by Senate Democrats.
It should be an interesting 60 days reading the Post's coverage of the General Assembly.
