Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, November 21. Also check out President Obama’s final press conference following the APEC summit in Lima, Peru. Now, close your eyes and imagine Donald Trump carrying himself with such dignity, intelligence, class, etc. as Obama. Uhhhhhh….

  • Del. Rob Bell (R) withdraws from Virginia AG race, leaving John Adams the clear favorite to take on Virginia AG Mark Herring (D).

    Dear Friends,

    Now that the 2016 election is over, it is time for the 2017 Virginia statewide campaigns to begin in earnest. After careful consideration, I have decided that I will not seek the position of Attorney General.

    I have spent the last year traveling the state and laying the groundwork for a campaign. However, as you may know, I have two young children, one of whom has special needs. This school year has brought significant new challenges that require my personal and immediate attention. Despite my best efforts, it has become clear to me that I can’t possibly fulfill my responsibilities as a father while making a statewide run.

    I am therefore ending my Attorney General campaign. I am profoundly grateful to everyone who has offered support, time, or encouragement. Unless told otherwise, I will be returning the donations I have received. Though I won’t be a statewide candidate I do look forward to strongly supporting the Republican ticket, especially against Mark Herring.

    For several years, I have had the honor of serving in the General Assembly seat once held by Thomas Jefferson. I look forward to continuing my work in the House of Delegates and spending Thanksgiving with my family.

    Sincerely,

    Delegate Rob Bell

      This treatment of indigenous peoples who are trying to protect the remaining vestiges of sacred lands is cruel and unusual punishment. Strangely enough, this inhumane treatment was not used on the Bundy crowd who had no right to public lands and took the Masher National Wildlife Refuge hostage.

      • You mean Malheur, but yeah…totally agree that there’s wildly different/better treatment if you’re white than if you’re non-white.

          Damned auto-correct. Aargh!
