Senator Mark Warner to Launch 2020 Re-Election Campaign with Five-Day Tour Across Virginia

Our goal should be a massive reelection margin for Sen. Warner for several important reasons...


See below for a press release from Sen. Mark Warner about his 2020 reelection campagin kickoffs next week. Why does this matter? A lot of reasons. As I wrote back on February 13,  just as with Sen. Tim Kaine in 2018, our goal should be a massive reelection margin for Sen. Warner in order to send a clear, resounding message that we reject the Trump Republican Party and everything it stands for. Second, by helping to reelect Sen. Warner by a huge margin, we can help guarantee that Virginia goes for the Democratic presidential nominee against Trump. Third, and perhaps most importantly, the better Sen. Warner does in November, the better our Democratic “downballot” candidates – including potentially vulnerable, first-term incumbents like Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA07) and Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02), plus potential pickups in tough, but possibly competitive, districts like VA01 and VA05 – should do as well. And finally, Sen. Warner has been doing a great job for Virginia and for the country, really pushing back hard against the Trump administration’s disrespect for the rule of law, working to safeguard our elections against foreign (e.g., Russian) interference, and also leading on important issues like the social media “wild, wild West” and the “gig economy”/”rethinking worker benefits for an economy in flux.” In sum…go Mark Warner!
