This is an interview from Henrico County Democratic Committee Chairman Marques Jones with Del. Lamont Bagby (D-HD74) and Brandon Jarvis covering redistricting and the November elections.
Bagby is the chairman of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus and opposed the Redistricting Commission that was ultimately approved by the General Assembly and Virginia’s voters. The Commission recently reached an impasse and was unable to agree on any set of General Assembly legislative maps. The task will now be up to the Virginia Supreme Court to draw state Senate and House of Delegates maps.
