Virginia Politics: Is New Political Activism Changing Both Major Parties?
Virginia’s political culture was once more distinct and did not follow the same paths and pathos as the rest of the nation. Virginia’s low-turnout elections and fiscal conservatism were hallmarks of a pride that residents had in a system that was held up as an exemplar of clean, if somewhat sleepy, slow-to-change government. Much has changed in the past 20 years as Virginia more and more has come to resemble national patterns and trends. The politics of this purple state are all-American and are changing faster than before. This class should allow participants the opportunity to engage in healthy discussions of political life and Virginia political history and the chance to help promote ways to restore trust, civility and respect to politics. We will discuss how new political activism may be changing both major parties in the state.
