Va. Gov.: 'Warner '08' in Bristol
The Warner-Kaine express rolled into Bristol this morning with stops at a railroad station, which is being revitalized, and Java J's, a downtown coffee shop.
Gov. Mark Warner (D) sounded a message that could well be the start of a national campaign during a brief speech at the coffeehouse. "Measurable results is what people want from their government," he said. "They don't want people fighting back and forth."
That pronouncement was greeted by calls of "Warner '08!"
The crowd numbered roughly 75 in the coffeehouse, which owner Julie Marion opened five years ago. Warner seemed to revel in the nitty-gritty of retail politics -- hugging an older woman while exclaiming, "There are some good things about being governor."
Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine won his biggest applause when he touted his ties to Warner. "We need to keep moving Virginia forward," said the candidate for governor. "I've got a good news story to tell."
On to Galax ...
