WEST VIRGINIA GOVERNOR AND LIBERTY UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT TALK SECESSION FOR UNHAPPY VIRGINIA COUNTIES
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. are pitching a Virginia secession plan. Justice and Falwell are urging unhappy Virginia counties to secede and join West Virginia where Democrats are not in charge. They invited Virginians on Tuesday at a news conference and added weight to backlash against Virginia Democrats' push for gun control. The two men did acknowledge that the idea is a long shot. Earlier this month the West Virginia House of Delegates and Senate introduced resolutions inviting parts of Virginia to join West Virginia.
