Schapiro: Another distinction for a Va. history-maker, Mary Sue Terry

Mary Sue Terry, the first — and until Nov. 2, the only — woman elected statewide in Virginia has had seven careers. She’s been a small-town lawyer in rural Patrick County, on the Virginia-North Carolina border, where she grew up and to which she returned in the 1990s. Terry was a member of the House of Delegates for nearly a decade. She shattered the statewide gender barrier in 1985, winning the first of two terms as attorney general.
