Warner Continues Tour Around the State
Hundreds of supporters, including many local elected officials, greeted Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Mark. R. Warner at an outdoor rally outside the Hampton Roads Naval Museum in Norfolk on the second day of his four-state tour. A four-piece ensemble played music.
Jim Pierce, a financial adviser from Williamsburg who considers himself a Republican, said he will support Warner because he is impressed with his "common sense" approach and the way he reaches across party lines.
Warner, who calls himself a moderate Democrat, frequently talks of forming a coalition of 10-12 "radical centrist" senators from both parties to hash out compromises.
The tour launched Sunday night in Abingdon, a small town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, as recognition of the power base he built in rural Virginia during his successful run for governor in 2001. He flew to Roanoke, Norfolk and late this afternoon he appeared in downtown Richmond with Gov. Timothy M. Kaine.
Tonight, he will hold an event at the Carlyle Club in Alexandria with U.S. Sen. James Webb.
