The former City Councilwoman made the leap to the House of Delegates in 2009, and her stock has been rising since. Under her leadership the Richmond Slave Trail Commission has taken off — plans call for a national slave museum in Shockoe Bottom — and she was the first to question police-pursuit policies after Church Hill pastor Anthony Taylor was killed in March. McQuinn somehow won over an unlikely ally — the Sons of Confederate Veterans — in her work with the Slave Trail Commission.
