Warner campaigns for Nye, Perriello
Sen. Mark Warner is spending some time this week campaigning for freshmen Reps. Glenn Nye and Tom Perriello, fellow Democrats who face tough re-elections in November.
Warner, who is touring parts of the state while Congress is on recess, will attend a rally for Nye Wednesday afternoon at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach. He will also headline a fundraiser Wednesday night at the Virginia Beach home of Paul Hirschbiel, president of Eden Capital, a private investment company.
Saturday, Warner will spend some time with Perriello in the Charlottesville area, though the events have yet to be scheduled. The two also will attend the Albemarle Democrats' picnic late Saturday afternoon. (Also attending are Sens. Creigh Deeds and Don McEachin).
The 2008 turnout for Warner, who received more votes than any politician in state history, and Barack Obama helped both Nye and Perriello beat their Republican incumbent opponents.
