Gov. McAuliffe delivers final address to lawmakers

Governor Mc Auliffe pardons 6 Virginians given ‘excessive’ sentences Governor Mc Auliffe pardons 6 Virginians given ‘excessive’ sentences

McAuliffe has been mentioned as a potential 2020 presidential contender.

He leaves office Saturday.

"I for one, to be honest with you, did not come into this job expecting the Republican leadership of the general assembly to sue me for contempt over my restoration of rights efforts, but, I think the fact that I was the first Governor to receive such an honor only underscores what a truly historic four years this has been for Virginia". "But there is still more work to do", he said.

McAuliffe said more than one million Virginians owe over $30 billion in student loan, which can threaten financial security and hold back the economy because people delay their decisions to buy homes and cars, save for retirement and start their own businesses. He has stepped into the national spotlight as a liberal voice on some social issues, including gun control.

The Virginia General Assembly's 2018 session has officially begun.

He then proceeded to sign restoration orders on an individual basis.

In the halls of the Capitol after McAuliffe's speech, House Majority Leader Todd Gilbert said the party is thankful for McAuliffe, and thankful for McAuliffe's service, but also looking forward to a new administration.

"If restoring Virginians' civil rights was my proudest moment as Governor, witnessing the bigotry and violence we saw last August in Charlottesville was the lowest", said McAuliffe.

Heather Heyer of Charlottesville was killed when a vehicle plowed into the crowds who were protesting the white nationalists. Later, two state troopers monitoring the event from the air died when their helicopter crashed. Heyer's mother and stepfather, Susan and Kim Bro, were in the gallery Wednesday night.

As for the road ahead, McAuliffe said the legislature should "put the politics aside" and expand Medicaid, something he's fought with the GOP-controlled General Assembly over for four years.

Gov. McAuliffe established the record for the most bills vetoed during his time in office - a total of 120. Republicans contend that Virginia's economic picture is not as rosy as McAuliffe portrays it.
