    Former RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie launches Senate bid against Warner

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Warner suddenly silent on Obamacare

    I just received the year-end letter of Sen. Mark R. Warner, Virginia Democrat, in which Mr. Warner talked about 2013 in Congress. Despite charges of this Congress being unproductive, Mr. Warner was encouraged by the recent budget negotiations and what he thinks will be good for Virginia businesses. Mr. Warner also mentioned his other priorities, such as protecting military whistleblowers, transparency and accountability in federal spending and housing. These are all worthy activities.

    EDITORIAL: A Republican winner for '14

    Sometimes today's loser is tomorrow's winner. Virginia state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain conceded last week that a conveniently discovered ballot box had given his Democratic opponent a slim edge in the recount for attorney general. As a conservative Republican who performed better than the rest of his party on Election Day, Mr. Obenshain might give serious thought to filing against Sen. Mark R. Warner, a Democrat, who must defend his U.S. Senate seat next November.

    Virginia Gov.-elect McAuliffe makes first top-level appointments

  • The man: Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, who once promised wife Teiro that he wouldn't run for office, now has her at his side as he seeks the governorship. People close to him contrast portrayals during the campaign. (Andrew Harnik/The Washington Times)

    A side of Cuccinelli voters don't get to see; reluctant politician fan of 'Rapper's Delight'

    After record millions spent on TV advertising in Virginia's governor race, Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II finds himself in the unenviable position of knowing there's a side to him voters haven't experienced.


  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Warner's betrayal of Virginia

    Sen. Mark R. Warner, Virginia Democrat, is a former governor of our commonwealth. He sold himself as a businessman and an entrepreneur, yet he voted for Obamacare, voted not to repeal Obamacare and voted not to make Congress live under Obamacare — despite the law requiring its members to do so. I guess the free market is good for him and his colleagues, but not for the rest of America.
