    Local/State Politics Thread

    This thread is mainly to discuss the politics that focus on the local area and Virginia as a state. It can also be used to talk about how the aforementioned areas are in rankings and what can be done to do better. I came across a study from Oxfam stating that Virginia is the worst state to work in. What do you think about this?

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/2/19/17029800/voxcare-virginia-medicaid-expansion It seems that Medicaid could potentially be expanded in Virginia. What do you think of this?

    Medicaid Expansion in Virginia

    It appears that the Medicaid expansion will draw more enrollees than initially projected.

    Apparently, Virginia has a liquor ratio law for restaurants where they can't have too high of a percentage of their income come from liquor. Lawmakers are apparently working on a bill that would end that law.

    2018 Midterm Elections

    I knew that Tim Kaine was being projected to be re-elected to the Senate with a fairly healthy margin of victory, but I'm surprised that RCP has his average polling MoV at around 18.5%

    Local College Thread

    I've seen a bunch of threads about the large colleges followed in the area (VT, UVA, Tennessee, etc.). How about a thread dedicated to the colleges in this area (UVA-Wise, E&H, ETSU, Concord, Bluefield, etc.)? So... UVA-Wise had their spring game earlier today. Concord also had theirs earlier today.

    Seems like Wise is starting to turn it around. They've won back-to-back games and are now 3-4 on the season In addition, ETSU just defeated the Citadel to go to 6-1.

    It's gonna be Flaccavento vs Griffith next month. Do you think it will be a blowout like in 2012? Will the Democrats retake the House and/or Senate?

    What would you propose as a solution to this? Mine would be a nonpartisan, independent commission on redistricting

    Great win today for the Cavs. Hopefully, they can take care of the turnover problem that they have been having for these past few games. Looks like Bernard and Cousin are gonna be a formidable duo for the next few years.
