Henry, 39, will begin work with “Friends of Mark Warner” on March 3.\ \ \ After graduating from Old Dominion University in Norfolk in 1990, Henry worked on U.S. House and Senate campaigns in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, and Maryland. He worked for the Virginia General Assembly’s House and Senate Democratic Caucuses through much of the 1990s, and led the Democratic Coordinated Campaign effort that resulted in the election of Governor Warner and Lieutenant Governor Timothy M.
