Virginia News Headlines: Thursday Morning

by: lowkell

Thu Jul 07, 2011 at 06:08:52 AM EDT

Here are your Virginia news (political and otherwise) headlines for Thursday morning.

*D.C. Mayor Gray backs aboveground Dulles rail stop
*Is an above-ground Dulles Metro stop enough?
*Webb, Warner introduce bill to allow offshore drilling
*Dems Meet in Richmond Next Week To Gear Up for Electoral Challenges
*Cuccinelli: UVa policy can't bar concealed weapons
*Nye says he won't run for Congress in 2012
*Eric Cantor Offers Up a Compromise on Tax Loopholes
*Affordable housing likely to be an issue at Fairfax polls
*Warner 'would not consider' Treasury secretary job
*Dishonesty in the debt talks
*Moran seeks study of museum of American people
*Picasso exhibit had a nearly $29 million impact in Virginia

UPDATE: The Blue Virginia poll results are unscientific, of course, but they're probably a fairly accurate snapshot of where Blue Virginia readers are at with regard to the 30th and 31st State Senate primaries. The results:

30th District: Ebbin 57%-Krupicka 24%-Garvey 19%
31st District: Areizaga-Soto 76%-Favola 24%

Clearly, Adam Ebbin and Jaime Areizaga-Soto are highly popular among Blue Virginia readers, at least the ones who took the poll. We'll see if that translates into grassroots energy, contributions, and/or votes for those candidates in the weeks leading up to the August 23rd primaries.
