Ed Gillespie for Senate. Tony Snow for Senate. Eric Cantor for Senate (though I think he should be governor — as if it’s up to me, I’m not a Virginian). Kate O’Beirne for Senate…
Governor Senator Congressman Cantor:
Today is a day to honor Senator Warner’s decades of invaluable service to our nation and the Commonwealth of Virginia. John is the true embodiment of a statesman, and he brought integrity and wisdom to the Senate for over 30 years. Serving in the US Military both as an officer and then becoming Under Secretary of the Navy, Senator Warner dedicated his life to public service. I think I speak for the entire Commonwealth of Virginia, as I thank Senator Warner for a sterling career and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. He will truly be missed.
We won’t hold that against him.
