Virginia named best in the nation for business for fifth time

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Business news network CNBC has named Virginia this year’s “Top State for Business.”

The award is welcome news for Democrats who control state government and are defending their record during a critical election year. In a competitive governor’s race, jobs and the economy have been a central issue.

Virginia has now won the award five times, surpassing Texas for most years as at the top.
