Politician Interviews

Virginia onAir curators have recorded and produced a number of video interviews on Virginia representatives and candidates for state Senate and House to help Virginia voters learn more about each politician.

Inside this post are some of the interviews conducted by mostly George Mason University students.

Virginia House of Delegates

The Virginia House of Delegates is one of two parts in the Virginia General Assembly, the other being the Senate of Virginia.

The House of Delegates has 100 members elected for terms of two years; unlike most states, these elections take place during odd-numbered years. The House is presided over by the Speaker of the House, who is elected from among the House membership by the Delegates. The Speaker is usually a member of the majority party and, as Speaker, becomes the most powerful member of the House.

House Majority Leader is Todd Gilbert and the House Minority Leader is Eileen Filler-Corn.
