Video: On “Face the Nation,” Sen. Mark Warner Says We’re “8 or 9 days away” From a Government Shutdown, That It’s Time for Speaker McCarthy to Ditch the Far Right and “put together a bipartisan effort…to keep the government funded”

Sen. Warner says AI poses "enormous risk" to upcoming U.S. elections and to public markets.


See below for video and highlights from Sen. Mark Warner’s appearance this morning on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” On a possible government shutdown (which would be 100% the fault of House Republicans, by the way), Sen. Warner said:

“I would like to say no, but we’re 8 or 9 days away and we’ve not even been able to see the House pass the most basic defense appropriations bills. I hope and pray that Speaker McCarthy will say, ‘hey, I’m going to throw over the far right and I’m going to put together a bipartisan effort with the Democrats and mainstream Republicans to keep the government funded’. I think that would get…350-400 votes.”

On artificial intelligence, Sen. Warner says that it poses an “enormous risk” to upcoming U.S. elections, that China “is a major player in AI,” and that we need regulation/guardrails both to protect our “public markets” and our “public elections.”
