Editor Chris Graham joins WREL’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” to talk Virginia news and politics.

The segment begins with a discussion of the report of a state advisory council that this week told Gov. Bob McDonnell that the performance of the health-care industry in Virginia is mediocre.

Chris tries to give some insight into what the next steps might be.

We wrap the week with a review of a proposal from Republican lawmaker Bob Marshall to bar gays and lesbians from serving in the Virginia National Guard in the wake of the repeal of the federal don’t ask, don’t tell policy. Does the effort have a chance of becoming the law of the Commonwealth?
