Warner Floods Virginia With Yard Signs

Tim Craig

Virginia Democratic officials report that U.S. Senate candidate Mark R. Warner's campaign distributed 10,000 yard signs today across Virginia.

Mike Henry, Warner's campaign manager, called it the "biggest one day sign blitz ever" conducted in the state.

Although there has been an ongoing debate in Democratic circles over the importance of yard signs in the presidential race, Warner (D) is well-known for his affinity for plastering his red, white and blue signs all over the state.

There is no way to verify, however, that Warner's efforts today actually set a one-day record. But it's safe to assume you'll be seeing Warner's name a lot in the coming weeks.

How about buttons and bumper stickers? Lost in this whole yard sign shortage issue is that buttons and bumper stickers are also in short supply. I don't understand how you can only cover the main election issue of yard signs and ignore the just-as-relevant button/bumper sticker crisis. I mean, seriously, what kind of political journalist are you?

For the love of all that is holy, would you please stop writing endless articles about yard signs and do some actual journalistic reporting!?!?!

A Cantor sign appeared in my yard, and I'd NEVER support that guy. I suspect they're using their surplus of signs to vandalize the yards of people they've identified as enemies. Has this happened to anyone else? My wife suspects it happened to people all over Richmond.
