Mark Warner Running For Senate
This was inevitable. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I think Warner has to be considered the odds-on favorite to win the Senate seat. He is still very well regarded in Virginia for his tenure as Governor (VA term limits Governors to one term). Demographically, Virginia is turning bluer as Northern Virginia has grown. Warner's likely opponents are Tom Davis, Eric Cantor, and Tom Gilmore. The former two could present a stiff challenge, Gilmore would get his clock cleaned.
