It has used the death penalty more than any other state.

Story at a glance

    Virginia lawmakers passed legislation to ban the death penalty, which has the backing of the state’s governor.
    The state will become the 23rd to stop executions and the first in the American South.
    Research shows Black Americans are more likely to be executed under the death penalty than white Americans.

With the anticipated signature of Gov. Ralph Northam, Virginia will go from one of the most prolific states in using the death penalty to the first in the American South to abolish capital punishment.

“Over Virginia’s long history, this Commonwealth has executed more people than any other state. And, like many other states, Virginia has come too close to executing an innocent person,” Northam, Senate Majority Leader Richard L. Saslaw and House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn said in a joint statement. “It’s time we stop this machinery of death.”

Virginia may be south of the Mason-Dixon line, but it's now a blue state.
Probably ... forever.

Virginia is no longer a southern state. They had really bad immigration laws,and allowed too many yankees to move there.

Yup.   The state is lost.   
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.

As the DEMS allow the illegals to pour in along with the refugee and grant amnesty, the entire country will be Blue.
GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

@libertybele

Which is why they are doing it.

Does anyone REALLY think any of those Dims will be inviting any of the illegals to come have dinner with them?

Nope,they plan to use them,and when they are no longer helpful,abuse them just like do to everybody else.
