  • Del. Eileen Filler Corn and Del. Charniele Herring

Ms. Herring was selected Saturday to serve as the majority leader, which would make her the first woman and the first African American to hold that particular position.

Del. Rip Sullivan will serve as Caucus Chair, Virginia House Dems said.

"Not only did Virginia just elect the most diverse House of Delegates in its 400-year history, but House Democrats have made history again by nominating a diverse leadership slate to truly represent Virginia", House Democratic Caucus executive director Trevor Southerland said in a statement.

Virginia's House of Delegates is poised to have the first female speaker in its 400-year history, with the chamber's Democrats choosing a veteran legislator for the post.

Republicans lost their slim seat advantages in both the state House and Senate, giving Democrats led by Gov. Ralph Northam the ability to pass stricter gun laws and a higher minimum wage, as well as change rules barring the removal of Confederate war memorials.

Worldwide companies also flock to the company's various online platforms, eager to sell everything from liquor to sports cars. It is expected that more than 500 million users will flock to the shopping sites, 100 million more than a year ago .

The House Democratic Caucus said in a release that Filler-Corn will also be the first Jewish Speaker. "And we're thrilled to be in the majority". "We experienced a historic evening on Tuesday and we had a historic day now, so I'm looking forward to continuing to stand up for the issues and values that are so important to Virginians".

The victories completed a Democratic comeback in the state Legislature that began in 2017, when Democrats made major gains in the Legislature, largely through suburban districts, and Northam won handily in an early sign of backlash over Donald Trump's presidency. He mentioned Republicans are anxious they are all from "the deepest elements of northern Virginia" and want to ensure folks in other components of the state get a good listening to. "We have come so far since then", Filler-Corn said, touting the legislative body's cultural, gender and geographic diversity.

Outgoing Dwelling Vast majority Leader Todd Gilbert congratulated Filler-Corn and other new Democratic leaders.

Filler-Corn, 55, works for a lobbying and consulting firm in northern Virginia.
