Virginia’s 72nd Governor began his term Saturday in Richmond’s rain-drenched Capitol Square. McLean Democrat Terry McAuliffe (pictured) included many references to bipartisanship during his inaugural address. McAuliffe declared “common ground doesn’t move towards us, we move towards it.” The ceremonies honoring the 56-year-old New York native attracted Former President Bill Clinton and onetime Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  McAuliffe made another appeal for the General Assembly to add 400,000 new names to the Medicaid rolls. Many Republican lawmakers are opposed to Medicaid expansion. McAuliffe’s Democratic ticket-mates were also sworn in Saturday. They are Ralph Northam of Norfolk, who’s the new Lieutenant Governor, and Mark Herring of Loudoun County, who won a very close contest for Attorney General.
