It's official. Virginia's senior Senator John Warner will not seek re-election in 2008 post on Fox News.com. This leads to an open seat that will no doubt see a hotly contested race.I congratulate Senator Warner on a long career of service to the United States, that included a stint as Secretary of the Navy.
Personally, I believe Senator Warner has done the right thing. He's been a thorn in the flesh for Virginia conservatives for years. The most prominent example is his endorsement of Marshall Coleman for Senate over the VA GOP's nominee, Oliver North in 1994.
The Virginia GOP has the opportunity to nominate a genuine conservative to the United States Senate. Let the games begin!!!!
