(( The 11th hour of the fight over picking a new justice to the Virginia Supreme Court had already stretched into the second day.
And what a dark day it was.
With a 3pm deadline -- Republican Senators nominated Norfolk Southern attorney and former Roanoker Wiley Mitchell to the high court.
But the Democrats in the Senate walked out until two minutes before the House deadline. VO AT SATURDAY 02:14:32
Montgomery County Democrat Madison Marye told us his arms had been twisted so far by fellow Democrats, they were hanging limp by side.
But he voted for the former moderate Republican Senator -- one of four Democrats to help make Mitchell the Senate's choice.
Bad news for House Majority Leader Dick Cranwell of Roanoke County.
Cranwell's faced Mitchell over 200 times in his private law practice -- suing Norfolk Southern on behalf of injured workers.
