Warner Campaigning in North Stafford Today
NORTH STAFFORD, Va. — Virginia Senator Mark Warner will come to North Stafford today to talk about his reelection bid.
The incumbent one-term Senator who previously served four years as Virginia’s Governor starting in 2002 announced he’s seeking relection in the U.S. Sentate on May 28.
After several stops around the state, Warner will stump at the Courtyard by Marriot at the Quanitco Corporate Center, at 375 Corporate Center Drive in North Stafford. It will be the last stop on a tour Warner dubbed the “Working Together Tour.”
“As Governor, Mark Warner helped bring nearly 130,000 jobs and helped Virginia earn the designation as the nation’s best state for business and the best-managed state. Elected to the U.S. Senate during the 2008 recession, Sen. Warner had a key role in successfully enacting bipartisan Wall Street reforms,” a press release stated. “Widely viewed as a consensus-builder in Congress, Sen. Warner has worked for greater fiscal accountability, and he is a bipartisan leader in promoting innovation and greater economic opportunity. Sen. Warner is a champion for Virginia’s small businesses, and a strong advocate for Virginia’s military men and women, our veterans and their families.
While Warner, a Democrat, is campaigning, state Republicans will hold a convention in Roanoke on Saturday to determine who will challenge Warner. Some of the known candidates include, Tony DeTora, congressional policy adviser, Ed Gillespie, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Shak Hill, a decorated combat pilot and owner of a financial services practice, and Chuck Moss, a businessman.
Voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 4.Send news and photos to Potomac Local
