New Democratic majority in Virginia plans to make it easier to take down Confederate statues

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — An army of Confederate monuments dots Virginia’s landscape but some of those statues could soon start coming down after Election Day gave Democrats control of the General Assembly for the first time in decades.


Members of the new legislative majority say they plan to revive proposals to make it easier to remove the public displays honoring Civil War soldiers and generals in a state that was home to two Confederate capitals. Previous attempts to do so were quickly dispatched in the Republican-controlled General Assembly, in votes largely along party lines.
