What are the odds that Kirk Cox could become Virginia’s next Governor?

WFXR Political Analyst Karen Hult said the odds are relatively low.

The Republican Speaker of the House of Delegates is listed as the third-in-line, according to the Constitution of Virginia Article 5, Section 16.

“There are some paths that all three of the men can move forward without resigning. There is no basis that I can see for impeaching or removing any of the three men,” said Hult. ” It’s not as likely perhaps as it looked like over the weekend for Governor Northam stepping down.”

Hult is the Chair of the Department of Political Science at Virginia Tech.
