Today, former President George H.W. Bush endorsed Ed Gillespie in the Virginia Senate race.
Recent polling from Real Clear Politics on the race has incumbent Senator Mark Warner– who originally had a 29 point lead– maintaining a mere 7 point lead. Senator Warner has been pulling “out all the stops” with the race getting closer than anyone ever expected. Ed Gillespie has focused his campaign against Warner on two key issues: the Senator’s record of voting with the Obama administration 97% of the time for the past six years, and his unwavering support of Obamacare.
Ed is closing in on election day with the same momentum Virginia had just months ago when Dave Brat caused a political shockwave by beating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the 7th district primary. With one day left, all we have to do is wait.
