In the post-Tim Kaine era, Virginians elected Bob McDonnell to be their next governor. He’s not just a Republican; he’s a Republican with deep ties to Pat Robertson:
… Robertson’s connections to McDonnell extend back decades to when McDonnell earned a degree from Robertson’s Regent University School of Law with a 1989 thesis on putting Religious Right dogma into law. Soon thereafter, McDonnell won his first elective office with the backing of the Christian Coalition, which was founded by Robertson. More recently Robertson and his family members donated tens of thousands of dollars to McDonnell’s 2009 gubernatorial campaign, and tomorrow, Robertson will be at McDonnell’s inauguration.
Looks like the ACLU of Virginia and church/state separation groups have their work cut out for them for a little while. Just keep tabs on what McDonnell does and be ready to pounce.
