Senator Newman - President pro tempore

"The Lieutenant Governor is the presiding officer of the Senate and is elected in a statewide election for a four-year term. Inaugurated on January 11, 2014, Ralph S. Northam [presently] serves as Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. In the event of his absence, the President pro tempore carries out the duties of the presiding officer. The President pro tempore is elected by the Senate for a term of four years.

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
— Holy Bible James 1:5
