Another one bites the dust. This time the appeal was struck down. Virginia is now one step closer to marriage equality, as the case is likely on its way to the Supreme Court. Now Virginia has a Governor and Attorney General who support it. Let's do this!

N.C. is being sued for potentially violating the 26th Amendment. Dems have the edge with young voters. The G.O.P. passes voter ID laws, that don't accept college ids. And, they would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids!
