Virginia's Senator

Blog

Less than a month until Election Day!

It is hard to believe that we have less than a month left to work every day to get out the vote and secure victory on November 4th.

As folks throughout the Commonwealth continue to knock on doors and speak with their neighbors about re-electing Mark Warner, this past weekend Senator Warner joined in on many of the cultural and seasonal festivities happening in the Commonwealth. We began the day at the Dar Al-Noor Islamic Community Center to wish those observing, a festive Eid al-Adha.

We then stopped by the Manassas Fall festival where we talked to local artisans and business owners and enjoyed some bluegrass.

Then we headed to the Heritage Indian Festival – where we helped to kick off the Diwali Festival season. It was great to celebrate the festival of lights and partake in South Asian culture, arts, and tradition. Senator Warner spoke with the crowd about his work as the co-founder and co-chair of the Senate’s bipartisan Indian Caucus and his continued efforts to create a strong partnership between the United States and India.

Next up Senator Warner stopped by the first ever NOVA Pride festival. It was a fantastic event and a personal highlight for Senator Warner who has a strong record of working with community leaders to move Virginia forward. He was the first governor in Virginia to ban discriminatory hiring practices for LGBT state employees. Senator Warner has continued to fight for the LGBT community, voting to repeal the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy in the Senate and supporting the right of all Virginians to marry whomever they love.

Senator Warner also joined in the 2nd Annual Multi-Chamber Candidate Forum in Annandale and took part in the Roanoke Chamber’s candidate forum. At both events, Senator Warner spoke about the need to work together in Washington. Because only when we come together can we begin to fix our nation’s debt and deficit, make college more affordable and support policies that encourages our business community to grow.

We have a busy few weeks ahead of us and look forward to sharing these moments with you. Be sure to get involved, and sign up here: markwarnerva.com/join
