According to the Associated Press, former Republican Senator John Warner endorsed his Democratic successor, Sen. Mark Warner, on Monday.
Sen. Mark Warner is running for Sen. John Warner’s Senate seat. John Warner held the seat for 30 years; John told the AP in a telephone interview that he is choosing Mark Warner over Republican Ed Gillespie in November’s election. The Warners are unrelated.
“There are times you must, I think, recognize that certain individuals are superior in their talents and in what they have done and can potentially do for your state,” John Warner said.
