John Warner has announced he will not be running for what would be his 6th term in the Senate. Despite disagreeing with many of his stances, I have a whole lot of respect for the man. This now throw what would have been a walkover for the GOP in to a possible, if not probable loss. If Mark Warner runs, I doubt anything short of a dead girl/live boy will stop him from winning. Wildly popular all over the state and a track record of accomplishments that no other GOP candidate can match. There will probably also be a blood bath between Jim Gilmore and Tom Davis over who gets the GOP nom where all the nasty divides in the Commonwealth will get played out.
