The House of Del­e­gates sent off Del. Jen­nifer L. McClel­lan on Thurs­day with three stand­ing ova­tions and a se­ries of bipartisan speeches prais­ing her decade of ser­vice in the House.

With a light cal­en­dar, the House spent most of its sec­ond floor ses­sion hon­or­ing McClel­lan, a Richmond Demo­crat who will be seated to­day in the state Se­nate af­ter win­ning a spe­cial elec­tion this week.
