Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, November 25.

*GOP faces unexpected challenges in South amid shrinking white vote
*Lincoln, Liberty and Two Americas ("We are moving toward two Americas with two contrasting - and increasingly codified - concepts of liberty. Can such a nation long endure?")
*ACC Football: Hokies squeak past Cavaliers, retain Commonwealth Cup
*House District #4 (Another in NLS' continuing series on Virginia House of Delegates districts...)
*Virginia Republicans to let 'personhood' bill die this week
*McDonnell's 'chief of stuff' stepping down but staying in family
*A post-election Q and A with Tim Kaine ("I'm kind of using (former Sen.) John Warner as my model as somebody who dug in, did it for a long time, accomplished a lot of good, and the fact that he was there for a while enabled him to attain positions that helped him do good things for the country and the commonwealth.")
*Hopefuls line up for 2013 election
*McDonnell to headline two dinners for Bolling
*Editorial: Abolish the 21-day rule ("Gov. Bob McDonnell's pardon freed an innocent man, but it will take months to clear his name.")
*Political ads brought region's TV stations $27 million ("The biggest winner in the Roanoke-Lynchburg market was WDBJ (Channel 7), which got $10.4 million.")
*Grand space needs grand conversation
*Va. official pitches mandatory anti-smoking classes
*Educators in Hampton Roads fear layoffs, other "fiscal cliff" fallout
*Editorial: Precinct plan is a matter of arithmetic ("A plan to consolidate Roanoke's voting precincts is facing unwarranted allegations of racism. The plan is about making it easier to vote.")
*D.C. area forecast: Still on the cool side. Might we see some snowflakes fly midweek?
