Warner "Leaning Toward Running for Re-Election" in Virginia

  • Virginia: The Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Associated Press both note that incumbent Republican Senator John Warner is "leaning toward running for re-election." While Warner "voiced concern about the amount of time it takes to raise the money for a Senate bid", he did suggest that he didn't think Virginia is "ready to have two freshmen senators". Suggesting that he might retire is also that he is giving up his Armed Services Committee chairmanship and returning to the minority party come January, as well as the VA-Democrats' deep bench and recent string of victories. Suggesting that he might run again is his relatively high approval rating. An official decision may still be several months off.
