Republican Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms Endorses Senator Mark Warner for Re-Election
ALEXANDRIA – Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms, a Republican, today announced his endorsement of Senator Mark Warner for re-election. Mayor Sessoms joins former U.S. Senator John Warner, former Suffolk Sen. Fred Quayle, former Virginia Beach Del. Bob Tata, and many other Virginia Republican elected officials and business leaders in endorsing Mark Warner’s re-election. John Warner, Fred Quayle and Bob Tata have never endorsed a Democrat before.
In his endorsement, Mayor Sessoms cited Mark Warner’s bipartisan approach to finding commonsense solutions for Virginians and focus on implementing policies that help Virginia Beach.
“Mark Warner knows the Virginia Way. And when he takes that to Washington, D.C. he will put it to good use and get people to work together for the betterment of this great country,” said Mayor Sessoms. “In addition, he knows the needs of the military. He sees their sacrifice daily and he will stand up for them and fight for them and make sure they get what they need to be successful. That’s why I’m supporting Mark Warner for re-election to the United States Senate.”
“Will Sessoms is one of Virginia’s great leaders and I am proud to have earned his support for my re-election,” said Senator Warner. “I will continue to work with anyone, Democrat or Republican, to repeal sequestration, to support our military men and women and veterans, and to find creative solutions to strengthen the economy of Hampton Roads and Virginia.”
Senator Warner has been relentless in his efforts to end the stupidity of across-the-board sequestration budget cuts. In fact, he voted for both Republican and Democratic bills to end the mindless cuts that disproportionately affect Hampton Roads’ economy. He even received the U.S. Navy’s highest civilian award for his efforts to give the Navy needed tools and flexibility to respond to sequestration cuts in a smarter and more responsible way.
Senator Warner has continued to work on behalf of Virginia’s men and women in uniform, military families, and veterans. He led the bipartisan congressional delegation in saving the aircraft carrier George Washington, helped head-off a planned cut in commissaries, and worked with the Navy to fix substandard off-base housing for Navy families.
On an issue that affects every region of the Commonwealth, Senator Warner has used his extensive business experience to put forward a bipartisan plan to reduce our debt and deficit. He also has led a bipartisan effort to create innovative new financing tools to jumpstart private investment in our nation’s infrastructure.
