Hey, there's even more good news from Virginia. According to The Washington Post, Republicans there appear to have outmaneuvered Governor Terry McAuliffe in a state budget standoff.

That gives Republicans control of the Virginia Senate, and the ability to block McAuliffe's efforts to ram through an expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare.

CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. It's a pleasure to speak with you. I actually have to say that Mr. Snerdley answered my initial question because I was curious as to whether Virginia had an open primary or if you had to declare for a Democrat or Republican ballot.
