Virginia News Headlines: Monday Morning

by: lowkell

Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 06:42:33 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, November 19.

*Obama, in an Emerging Myanmar, Vows Support (Nobody seems to be mentioning this, but Jim Webb has played a major role in U.S.-Myanmar/Burma diplomacy the past few years...)
*International pressure mounts for Gaza truce
*Much as Mark Warner loved being governor, he's not likely to leave Capitol Hill for Richmond
*Oil Lobbyists Target Sen. Mark Warner In New Ad ("As Washington lawmakers look for new streams of revenue to deal with the bloated federal budget, the American Petroleum Institute is looking to protect the hard-won tax breaks energy companies enjoy." That really says it all right there. Tell them to go jump in a lake...of high-sulfur oil.)
*House District #13 (Excellent analysis by NLS: Barack Obama and Tim Kaine won "Sideshow Bob" Marshall's Virginia House of Delegates district by wide margins. So...who do we have running against "Sideshow" next year?)
*Republicans Abandon Romney in Droves After 'Gifts' Comments
*Election-weary Virginia looks ahead to 2013
*495 Express Lanes open for rush hour
*Schapiro: A product of new Virginia, Allen undone by newer one
*Editorial: Right electoral fixes, wrong funding source ("Sen. Mark Warner offers a blueprint for better elections that Virginia and other states should follow.")
*Cat claims third place in Senate race
*Falls Church has the first 'passive house' in Fairfax County ("A super insulated, airtight house expected to reduce energy cost by 90 percent.")
*D.C. area forecast: A dry week which slowly warms up before weekend chill
*Griffin provides D.C. a present ("Star rookie Robert Griffin III backs up his words with a four-touchdown passing effort. His presence is why Washington has a fighting chance this season.")
