Warner’s Running for Senate

Mark Warner, former governor of Virgina, will announce a Senate run tomorrow in an email to supporters.   His entrance gives the Democrats an excellent shot at picking up a Senate seat in a state morphing from red to purple, as Warner ended his gubernatorial term with approval ratings over 70%.

In a way, the Senate seems like an odd fit for Warner – a Democratic version of Mitt Romney, extremely successful in business before entering the executive branch.  Warner co-founded Capital Cellular Corporation and was an early investor in Nextel, building up his net worth to an estimated $200 million.  An executive in the private and public sector, Warner may dislike the legislative environment in the Senate at first.  Nonetheless, Warner’s entrance is excellent for the Democrats seeking to pad their majority in Congress.
