dc.description.abstract The Virginia legislative races last year were fiercely contested on a partisan basis, because control of both houses of the General Assembly was at stake. The Republicans won a narrow margin in both houses for the first time since Reconstruction. There was fear that the Grand Old Party would enforce party discipline on all matters of consequence, and remake the legislative fabric of the state. In the current legislative session, the good news is that legislators appear to be influenced far more by local constituencies and personal conscience than by party politics.
