Virginia Commonwealth Caucus Reaffirms Bipartisan Commitment Before Election Day
On Monday the Virginia Commonwealth Caucus released the following statement….
“As Members of the bipartisan Commonwealth Caucus, we are committed to putting partisanship aside and protecting our democracy and institutions. Now more than ever, we will need to come together after this contentious election to address this pandemic and the resulting economic and health crises.
“After the votes are all counted, we ask that all Virginians and all Americans unite in support of our nation by accepting the outcome of the election. We support the right of every Virginian to peacefully protest, but we call on all to reject violence. We as a Caucus plan to work across the aisle regardless of who wins the election and continue to serve as an example for unity and bipartisanship.”
The Commonwealth Caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral group of Members of the Virginia General Assembly who seek to find common ground on important issues and create a culture of improved bipartisanship and governance in the Virginia General Assembly.
Currently, fourteen members of the Virginia General Assembly serve in the Commonwealth Caucus including eight Republicans and six Democrats.
