WARRENTON, Va. • A newspaper in Virginia is removing the word "Democrat" from its name because of the nation's increasingly divisive politics.
In an editorial published Wednesday, The Fauquier Times-Democrat announced it would now be known as the Fauquier Times. The editorial said having the word "Democrat" in the newspaper's name in such partisan political times "is no longer a very astute business decision."
The newspaper is located in Warrenton, about 45 miles outside of Washington. It's published twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.
