Robb mob: Reception honors former Governor


By Rebecca Beirne

Former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator Chuck Robb and his wife, Lynda Johnson Robb, must have been dazzled by the barrage of camera flashes greeting them at a July 2 reception in the Rotunda. Robb obligingly posed with local politicos such as Mitch Van Yahres and Larry Sabato at the shindig sponsored by UVA's Center for Politics and WHTJ Charlottesville PBS.

The reception was followed by a screening of "Charles S. Robb," the fourth installment of No Higher Honor, a PBS biography/documentary series recounting stories of contemporary Virginia governors and the ways their administrations have affected the lives of Virginia's citizens. The program airs Sunday, July 14, at 5pm.
