UPDATE: Also, Sen. Warner liked President Obama’s SOTU speech (as did just about everyone).

I believe the President struck the right tone tonight, and I welcome the bipartisan effort to find common ground to move us forward. Three steps are required to get our nation back on the right track: We must curtail federal spending, we need comprehensive tax reform, and we also must adopt an innovation and growth agenda. It will require all three of those elements, because no single one of them alone will get the job done.
