With Virginia Sen. Phil Puckett\’s resignation on Sunday tipping control of the chamber, state Republicans didn\’t waste any time.
Senate Republicans and Democrats hit an impasse Sunday over spending in their last-ditch struggle to avoid an economy-jarring default in just four days and end a partial government shutdown that\’s entering its third week.
House Speaker John Boehner is telling fellow Republicans that talks with President Barack Obama over ending the partial government shutdown and preventing a federal default have stalled.
He\’s been a mayor and a governor, and now Tim
Kaine is Virginia\’s newest senator in Congress.
A key race in the battle over control of the U.S. Senate is heating up, with all sides digging deep to get an advantage. Republican George Allen and Democrat Tim Kaine have been locked in a tight battle and the latest polls show them dead even.
