I hate to see the ‘ol War Horse, John Warner, leave our Commenwealth’s political leadership. But his equivication made it impossible for him to garner support, so stepping down was a smart thing to do. There are lots of good candidates, especially Jim Gilmore who was a great Governor and recent Presidential candidate. If VA allows his seat to go Democrat that should be a wake up call to the GOP. Sadly I don’t think the GOP is listening to anybody but the strident talking heads in the echo chamber, like the ones calling for Sen Craig to resign. The purity wars will only result in a smaller, angrier, less popular GOP. Thank you John Warner for all you did for this country and this proud state.
