Jackson Miller Gets Elevated

By Greg L | 20 November 2011 | Virginia Politics, Manassas City, Prince William County | 9 Comments

Jackson Miller gets a party leadership spot as House Majority Whip, and the conviction I’ve held about this Delegate since 2006 starts getting proven: this is an elected official who is going somewhere.  That, and Manassas has just gained some legislative clout that’s going to come in handy when Chuck Colgan finally steps down.

Given that Delegate Tim Hugo, who is clearly destined for bigger things in the near term, is helping fellow conservative Jackson Miller raise his prominence and potentially position himself for his next opportunity, this sets up an interesting dynamic.  Within the next few years Hugo moves to Congress or some other appropriate venue for his talents, Miller replaces Colgan in the 29th Senate District, Cuccinelli makes his move to Governor or US Senate, and conservatives like these build a long-lasting power center in Northern Virginia.

I like that. A lot.

    Could someone please tell us all what this position actually does? Does this mean he will now have to go along with the wishes of the House Republican leadership?

    Yeah, if I correctly understand the position… it is his job to make all the Republicans follow the wishes of the Speaker.

    Actually, the job is to count the votes on where the caucus is on any particular issue. Not much “enforcement”, if any.

    Virginia Democrats say they will sue to share control of the state Senate

    RICHMOND — There are those who question the wisdom of Virginia Democrats, who on Monday vowed to sue Republicans for the right to share control of the state Senate.

    Howard is the University of Virginia law professor who in 1996 wrote a legal opinion saying the lieutenant governor has the power to cast a tie-breaking vote on anything before the Senate.

    Because this month’s elections left the Senate evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, the GOP has relied on Howard’s analysis to assert that Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) will be able to vote on organizational matters — giving the party control of the chamber and power over its committees.

    The Virginia Democrats want the courts to give them what they couldn’t win at the ballot box.

    The Democrats position is somewhere between comedic and ironic. After the 1995 Senate elections the chamber was split 20-20. The Democrats were all ready to proceed with Don Beyer as the tie-breaker, and embraced Howard’s conclusion. Virgil Goode protested, and said that he would caucus with the GOP if the Democrats did not agree to powersharing.

    The Democrats shared power only because they were forced to do it.

    Back on topic, Jackson’s elevation is a big deal. No one should underestimate the importance to Manassas of having Jackson move up in Republican leadership. I don’t agree with all of his positions but I agree with most, he’s an excellent communicator, has judgment, and he’s got the stuffing to continue. I’m pleased by the good news.
