Monday, Virginia’s General Assembly met to approve some judicial appointments and make a decision about redistricting ahead of a Sept. 1 deadline. The special session, instead, turned into a partisan debate that ended ‘sine die’ without a decision on a Supreme Court appointment or redrawing the lines. We consider the political machinations underlying the debate and whether the ‘Virginia Way’ is a thing of the past.
