The chairman of Virginia’s Republican Party is upset about the way State Senate Democrats carried out a power shift.  Pat Mullins says Democrats are thumbing their noses at senate traditions, including the way bills get treated when they came from the House of Delegates. The Louisa County Republican says Roanoke Democrat John Edwards, who now chairs the Senate Rules Committee, gets too much power under the new arrangement. The committees got new leaders after Democrats changed the rules on January 28th. Both major parties have 20 senators, but the new tie-breaker is Democratic Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam. At the start of the 2014 General Assembly, Republican Bill Bolling was the tie-breaker. Mullins was a Thursday guest on the Schilling Show.
