Longtime House Member Will Retire
Del. Frank D. Hargrove Sr. (R-Hanover) announced today that he will retire this year after 28 years in the House of Delegates.
In recent years, Hargrove, 82, has been best known for changing his stance on the death penalty. Since that, he has introduced a bill that would end capital punishment but it has failed each year.
Hargrove made national headlines two years ago when he said that the issue of slavery was settled by the Civil War and that "our black citizens should get over it."
