U.S. House Members Stop by Virginia House
Even the introductions are partisan in the House of Delegates.
Del. Lacey E. Putney, an Independent from Bedford who caucuses with Republicans, introduced two visiting members of Virginia's congressional delegation, Republican Reps. Thelma Drake and Robert J. Wittman.
A third member, Democrat Rep. James P. Moran Jr. was sitting close by but was not recognized until House Minority Leader Ward L. Armstrong (D-Henry) stood up to introduce him.
Moran and the rest of Virginia's congressional delegation, including Sens. John Warner, were in town to meet with Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) at the Governor's Mansion.
After the meeting, some of them stopped into the House to visit with state legislators.
Moran walked onto the House floor, saying he wanted to sit with his brother, Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria), chairman of the House Democratic caucus and potential candidate for governor in 2009.
But when he walked in, he turned left to where the Republicans sit.
Brian Moran quickly came to get him, telling onlookers his brother was clearly lost.
