Sens. Warner and Kaine on Virginia Senate Redistricting Action

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) released the following joint statement today on Monday's surprise action by the Virginia Senate to push through a redrawn district map:

"On a day when Americans celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and inaugurated Barack Obama as President, Virginia Senate Republicans took advantage of the absence of civil rights leader Sen. Henry Marsh to push through a hyper-partisan change to Virginia's already gerrymandered legislative district map. This is not the way we should be conducting the people's business in Virginia. We are encouraged by Governor McDonnell's statements today expressing disapproval of the tactics that were used. We urge legislative leaders and other elected officials to do the right thing to correct this disappointing and disruptive partisan action."
