On Thursday Democratic incumbent Senator Mark Warner agreed to eight different appearances with Republican candidate Ed Gillespie, reports The Washington Post.
There will be two more televised debates, in addition to the one held last month, that are slated for October 7 in Fairfax County and October 13 in Richmond.
Four more appearances were agreed upon with two being made in in Northern Virginia in September , one in Danville in October and the other to be scheduled at a later date.
Warner addressed the joint appearances and said, “I look forward to continuing the conversation with “Virginians about my commitment to finding common sense solutions that provide every Virginian with a fair shot at success during these forums in all parts of the Commonwealth.”
As of now Warner is enjoying a double-digit lead over Gillespie and has raised more money than his challenger, who released his first TV ad this week.
