Abstract

The region’s political power in the Commonwealth has fallen precipitously over the past decade. The recent legislative redistricting process reduced the number of Hampton Roads delegates and sena-tors by about 15 percent, and the region has lost nearly all of its most senior and powerful legislators. We are at a low ebb in terms of political clout in Richmond, but brighter times may be on the horizon.
