UPDATED 8:45 pm Tuesday: Here’s the full video, with all the tributes to Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10), including from Senate Majority Leader Scott Surovell (D), Sen. Jeremy McPike (D), Sen. Adam Ebbin (D), Sen. Jennifer Boysko (D), Sen. Lamont Bagby (D)…and all of those listed below.

Today in the Virginia State Senate, there were numerous emotional tributes to former State Senator – and current US Congresswoman – Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10), who unfortunately is battling a very serious disease – Progressive Supra-nuclear Palsy, type-p – and has announced that she will not be running for reelection.

So, today on the floor of the VA State Senate, where Rep. Wexton served from 2014 to 2019, many of her former colleagues stood up and spoke about her. I didn’t capture all of it, as they kept going back and forth between tributes to Wexton and other business, but the following videos have the tributes by Sen. Russet Perry (D), (the end of remarks by) Sen. Barbara Favola (D), Sen. Dave Marsden (D), Sen. Mamie Locke, Sen. Danica Roem (D), Sen. Ghazala Hashmi (D), Sen. Dave Suetterlein (R), Sen. Bill. Stanley (R), (the end of remarks by) Sen. Christie New Craig (R), Sen. Suhas Subramanyam (D), Sen. Bill DeSteph (R), Sen. Ryan McDougle (R) and Sen. Stella Pekarsky (D). Over and over again, Senators spoke about Wexton’s humanity, kindness, great sense of humor, hard work, resourcefulness, dedication and many other great qualities (we can all just wish that our colleagues would have such great things to say about us!). Very moving, and clearly well deserved by Jennifer Wexton!
