  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Senate has voted to reappoint Helen Dragas, the University of Virginia rector who led a failed effort to oust the university's president last June.
     The Senate voted 29-9 on Monday in favor of her reappointment. 
     Opponents argued that it would send the wrong signal to reward Dragas for the effort to remove university president Theresa Sullivan. Sullivan's dismissal was reversed after an outcry by students, alumni and the public, but the university Thomas Jefferson founded had been disgraced worldwide.
