Toscano re-elected minority leader of Virginia House

wlni-defaultCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ Democrats have re-elected Charlottesville Delegate David J. Toscano minority leader of the Virginia House of Delegates. Toscano’s re-election was by acclamation at the annual winter retreat of the House Democratic caucus on Saturday in Richmond. Toscano announced Thursday he would not seek re-election to the leadership post, but he reversed himself on Friday amid appeals by fellow Democrats that he reconsider his decision. He has been minority leader since 2011. Republicans have strong majority in the House. A former mayor of Charlottesville, Toscano was first elected to the House in 2005. The caucus observed a moment of silence in recognition of the deadly attacks in Paris.
