Here’s a recap of the top stories on the morning of Nov. 9, 2023:   

Gov. Glenn Youngkin ‘disappointed’ by Election Day results
Reported by VPM News’ Lyndon German

The Republican governor pledged to work across the aisle in 2024, as Democrats are poised to sweep control of the General Assembly.

From in front of the Virginia State Capitol, Youngkin told reporters he was “a little disappointed,” in the unofficial results, but that Republicans’ losses did provide some insight on the commonwealth’s politics.

“I think the No. 1 lesson is that Virginia's really purple and that going into these elections, we knew that they were going to be tough,” he said.

U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in Virginia veteran’s education benefits case
Reported by VPM News’ Whittney Evans

FBI Special Agent James Rudisill claims the VA shorted him benefits he earned under separate GI Bill programs, which caused him to forfeit an offer to attend Yale Divinity School.

Rudisill’s attorneys said the Montgomery GI benefits pay about $2,200 per month, while benefits under the Post-9/11 GI are equivalent to a full scholarship — with stipends for living expenses, books and fees.

SCOTUS could rule on the case next spring.
