Split between House and Senate on how to pick judges
According to this report from the Washington Post, a Circuit Court vacancy in Alexandria has brought the differences between the House of Delegates and the Senate over the method of selecting judges. The Senate would defer to the local legislators, of whatever party, while the House leadership says no deference is due to Democratic legislators. Stated in such bald terms, it's hard to get excited about either method, except to say that either one beats what they've got in WV, KY, and TN.
