Fair Shot Tour: Day 4 Roundup

Senator Warner started the morning holding a Southwest Virginia Small Brewers Roundtable in Bristol.

Did you know that the Virginia beer industry supports 52,000 jobs in Virginia and generated $2.2 billion in revenue just last year alone?


As a member of the Senate Bipartisan Small Brewers Caucus, Senator Warner discussed his work to support the Virginia brewing industry as well as his efforts to reduce unnecessary costs for small businesses.

Next up, Senator Warner stopped by the gourmet hot dog restaurant Political Dogs, to eat the very first “Mark Warner Dog”.

We also stopped by Pulaski where Senator Warner took a tour of James Hardie Inc. He met with employees to discuss his long-term commitment to economic opportunity and job growth as well as his efforts to advance workforce training and education initiatives in the area.

Finally, we ended the night enjoying some bluegrass at the Old Fiddler’s Convention in Galax, yet another historic venue on the Crooked Road Heritage Music Trail. Senator Warner is particularly invested in the trail, an initiative he established as governor, and continues to work in the Senate to support the rich cultural heritage of Southwest Virginia.
