First Click - Virginia

Sandhya Somashekhar

Good morning Virginia, here's what's happening in politics around the state today.

While state lawmakers meet in Richmond today to address a recent Supreme Court ruling that could throw a wrench into many prosecutions, one big piece of news out of the special session will be the additional cuts Gov. Kaine is expected to propose to the budget.

Among the attendees will be state senator and gubernatorial hopeful Creigh Deeds (D) . He and GOP opponent Bob McDonnell each picked up a key endorsement yesterday, and today McDonnell spends the day in private meetings and visiting with businesses and law enforcement officials in Hampton Roads, a spokeswoman said this morning.

Area Congressmen continue to hold health care town meetings around the state, many of them facing the angry protests the meetings have become known for.

And in today's Post, Roz Helderman explores the implications of Virginia's no-limits policy on campaign contributions and Anita Kumar probes the politics of the delay of the HOT Lanes project.
