INAUGURATION--January 20th (tune-in by 11:30am, swearing in ~12 noon)
EVENING TV CELEBRATIONS IN LIEU OF TRADITIONAL CELEBRATIONS
(CNN): President-elect Joe Biden's team is producing a celebrity-filled prime-time special for the night of the inauguration in lieu of the traditional celebrations, which have been significantly pared down due to the pandemic, a Presidential Inaugural Committee official confirms to CNN.
The special, hosted by Tom Hanks, is set to air live on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST on January 20. It will feature performances from Jon Bon Jovi, who campaigned with Biden in Pennsylvania, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons. The 90-minute program, titled, "Celebrating America," will also feature remarks from the President-elect and the Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and will celebrate "American heroes" like frontline workers, teachers and health care workers, among others. Don't miss this for anything in the world!
Unlike most states, in Virginia, the governor and the lieutenant governor run in separate races, not as a pair elected as a team. It is possible that those who win an election could be from different political parties.
The official responsibilities of Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor are set forth in Article V of the Constitution of Virginia.
The lieutenant governor’s official duties are to serve as president of the State Senate and to preside over the Senate.
The lieutenant governor is first in the line of succession to governor. Should the governor be unable to serve due to death, disqualification or resignation, the lieutenant governor shall become governor.
In addition, the Code of Virginia provides that the lieutenant governor shall serve as a member of several state boards, commissions and councils, including the board of trustees of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation and the Center for Rural Virginia; the board of directors of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and the Virginia Tourism Authority; the Virginia Military Advisory Council, the Commonwealth Preparedness Council, and the Council on Virginia’s Future.
