Looks like Virginia politics is pretty interesting.

This is something that doesn't happen every day, to say the least:

John Warner endorses Mark Warner - James Hohmann - POLITICO.com

Retired Republican Sen. John Warner endorsed his Democratic successor and onetime rival Mark Warner on Monday in his race against Ed Gillespie.

The 86-year-old told POLITICO that the state benefits from the seniority in the Senate that the 59-year-old Warner (the two are not related) is accumulating. The former chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee also praised the younger Warner – with whom he has developed a friendship since the two squared off in a race nearly two decades ago – for effectively advocating on behalf of the state’s large military presence...

...John Warner, who developed a reputation as a Republican maverick who is willing to work with Democrats, told POLITICO that Mark Warner “has shown a very courageous ability to cross the aisle and try to work in a bipartisan way on major pieces of legislation.”

First elected in 1978, John Warner served 30 years in the upper chamber — with stints as chairman of the powerful Armed Services committee. He lamented the heavy turnover in the other Senate seat. During his three decades, five different men held it (Harry Byrd, Paul Trible, Chuck Robb, George Allen and Jim Webb.) Democrat Tim Kaine won the seat in 2012.

“It’s wise for a state, when you have someone who is doing the job well, to give him a chance to build that seniority and have a voice for the state in the Senate,” said John Warner. “The one thing that’s always going to be a part of Senate life is seniority … It’s always, I repeat always, there. Mark is on his way to achieve that seniority.”

INteresting.

I think that we will hear cries of RINO, but the fact is, the GOP is losing it's sane members.

Exactly! John is respected and admired by people is both parties. He is a statesman, a diplomat, and a Virginia Gentleman. And more importantly, he bedded Elizabeth Taylor before she porked out.
