Vexit? Southwest Virginia county mulls move to West Virginia

Tazewell County supervisor Charlie Stacy has suggested the possibility of the locality becoming part of West Virginia—a move he admits would take state approval and years to complete. Liberty University leader Jerry Falwell, Jr. and West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice recently held a news conference to encourage Virginia counties to break away from a Democratic-controlled state.
