DeLay getting a warm welcome in Virginia

While soon-to-be-former Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) will be experiencing a major change in his environment, moving from conservative Sugarland, Texas to liberal-leaning Alexandria, Virginia, The Hill notes that he is getting a warm welcome from his new Democratic representatives.

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who represents the state's 8th district, welcomed DeLay to what he called "a progressive, tolerant and open-minded community of caring, diverse and forward-thinking citizens...."

Not to be outdone, Moran's brother Brian, who represents DeLay's new hometown as a delegate in the Virginia state assembly, offered the former House majority leader this support: “I have been an advocate of restoring voting rights to felons for many years,” he told the Alexandria Gazette Packet. “I think DeLay will enjoy my representation.”
