Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning

by: lowkell

Sun Feb 03, 2013 at 07:29:17 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, February 3. Also, check out Sen. Mark Herring's talk - which was excellent, by the way - yesterday to around 100 people at the (Webb) "Brigades" meeting in Vienna. I'll post more video and thoughts of the event, at which LG candidates Ralph Northam and Aneesh Chopra also spoke, later today.

*In immigration debate, gay rights come to the fore (Just treat everyone equally; this is a no brainer!)
*Obama aims OFA where Reagan, Clinton failed
*Mayors' group to air Super Bowl ad
*Photo backs Obama's shooting claim (Crazy Teapublicans strike again with another "birther"-style "theory." Of course, it's false.)
*Schapiro: Cuccinelli comes a'courting - Bolling
*Are Democrats overreaching with criticisms of Cuccinelli Medicare, Social Security comments?
*Reps. Moran and Connolly: Sequestration Likely to Happen
*Mining issue now up to governor
*Editorial: Finding agreement on abortion politics ("Making abortions difficult to obtain won't stop them. Preventing pregnancies will. Virginia lawmakers have the means to make abortions rare")
*The GA must extend Medicaid in Virginia
*Donald McEachin: Medicaid expansion accomplishes much
*In Hagel Hearing, Kaine Talks Sequestration Concerns ("Former Sen. John Warner introduces Secretary of Defense nominee Sen. Chuck Hagel at Armed Services Committee hearing.")
*House District #40 (Another in NLS' excellent, continuing series on Virginia's House of Delegates districts...)
*When Metro's out, is walking a reasonable option?
*Fisette to Run for Reelection (I strongly support Jay for reelection.)
*RGIII wins NFL's Rookie of the Year
*D.C. area forecast: So many snow chances, so little to show
