FILE -In this Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, file photo, state Sen. Glen H. Sturtevant, R-Richmond, presents his resolution to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, to the members of the Virginia Senate at the State Capitol in Richmond, Va. Voters unhappy with the Republican president, particularly in suburban areas, powered historic Democratic gains in the state House two years ago. Last year the same energy helped Virginia Democrats knock out three incumbent members of Congress. GOP lawmakers have accused Democrats of trying to use a mass shooting earlier this year in Virginia Beach to pass strict new gun-control laws. A special session on gun control abruptly shut down shortly after it opened earlier this month. “Do we want Virginia to turn into California or New York?” Sturtevant asked in a recent email to supporters. His suburban Richmond district is a top target of Democrats. (Bob Brown/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP, File)
