Delegate Lionell Spruill (D- Chesapeake) spoke today on the House of Delegates floor on why he supports Republican efforts on legislation related to redistricting.
“They got it right . . .I do applaud Republicans one time for looking out for black folks. You all do that right. I give you credit for that. I will support you everytime they try to do a redistricting bill. I will support you everytime. And I hope that members of the black caucus, this time Republicans are right. When they are right we’ve got to go with them.”
