Senators Form New Caucus
Four state senators -- Richard H. Stuart (R-Westmoreland), Jill Vogel (R-Winchester), Ralph Northam (D-Norfolk) and John Miller (D-Newport News) -- have formed the Commonwealth Caucus to try to put Virginia above party affiliation.
"The people of Virginia are interested in performance, not partisanship," Miller said. "There are good ideas on both sides of the aisle. If we want to govern effectively, we must reach across the aisle to get things done."
The caucus plans to work to ensure partisan politics is removed from redistricting, selecting judges and protecting the Chesapeake Bay and other natural resources.
"While I will not compromise my conservative beliefs, I am committed to the three core positions of this caucus,'' Vogel said. "Our mission is to combat the gridlock that we faced last session and our new caucus will now make the difference on these key votes."
