Doubts over McAuliffe choice

 

State-News(AP) Some Virginia Democrats have expressed concern over Governor McAuliffe’s pick for chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia. It’s because Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones has not declared support for same-sex marriage. Leaders in the party’s gay and lesbian community suggest that picking Jones would signal that the state party is “retreating” on the issue, weeks after a federal judge ruled that Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
