Governor Terry McAuliffe has reacted to the federal indictments against his predecessor and his wife.  Democrat McAuliffe says “This is a sad day for Virginia, but I remain optimistic that we can work together to reform our system in order to prevent episodes like this from occurring ever again.”  U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-Alexandria) says he and McDonnell belong to different political parties, but he applauds many of the former governor’s accomplishments. House Speaker Bill Howell (R-Stafford County) and Delegate David Toscano (D-Charlottesville) say they are saddened by the development. Howell and Toscano are hoping this year’s General Assembly will approve ethics reform legislation.
