About an hour ago, DPVA Chair Charniele Herring was on The Politics Hour on WAMU. Here are my tweets from this segment:

*Dems “poised for success in Virginia,” “ready for a change in governorship”

*Bills to restrict women’s reproductive rights “woke up voters,” Virginia “testing ground” for national level.

*Virginia needs to stop passing bills that alienate people, make them second guess whether they should live here.

*Under divisive Republicans like Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia is slipping in terms of a place to do business.

*Confident Virginia transportation bill passes constitutional muster, was fully vetted by legal counsel

*We can gain seats in Virginia House of Delegates this year, including in the 16 Obama districts held by GOP’ers

*Strong ground game is crucial for 2013 elections in Virginia, need to turn out Obama/Kaine voters.

*Virginia Democrats need to build a bench of potential candidates, will be a long-term effort.

*Charnielle Herring hopes Gov. Bob McDonnell strikes hybrid fee and replaces the revenues with something else.
