Charter schools are locally- controlled schools with very little state oversight.
The Clinton administration has earmarked funds Virginia could get for them.

Roanoke County Democrat and House Majority Leader Dick Cranwell has led the fight against the schools.
Cranwell says charter schools could return Virginia to segregation and "Balkanize" the public school system between the haves and have nots.

According to The Washington Post, Pittsylvania County resident Ramona Hines has requested an investigation into Davis's conduct by the Virginia State Bar.
Hines was a client of Davis's when she made the videotape first seen on NEWS-7.
That tape is now part of an ad run by fellow Republican opponent Ken Stolle
(STAH-lee).


Hines says she complained to the State Bar about Davis's professional conduct last month.
She alleges that on several occassions over a two year period, Davis asked to meet him to discuss her case.

At those meetings she alleges that he would ask her to disrobe, get himself drunk, tell dirty jokes, and expose his underwear.
