John Warner Reacts to Election
Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) issued a statement tonight about the Democrats' success in retaking the state Senate and picking up four seats in the House. In the statement, Warner said Virginia Republicans paid a price for moving too far to the right in recent years. You can read the full statement below.
"In the past few years, the Republican Party of Virginia has drifted from the time-honored principle of the 'big tent' GOP advocated by my friend, the late Lee Atwater. The guiding standard of the party was
that it made room for a great number of values and views, and that moderation and willingness to compromise would be respected.
"In my judgment, yesterday's election results demonstrate that Virginia voters value greatly political leaders who are willing to reach reasonable solutions and tackle big issues ranging from the budget to immigration to the environment and transportation."
