Senator Mark Robert Warner

Mark Robert Warner (born December 15, 1954) currently serves in the United States Senate as the Junior Senator from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Warner was Governor of Virginia from 2002 to 2006 and is the Honorary Chairman of the Forward Together PAC. Warner delivered the keynote address before the nation at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Mark Warner got experience as a Congressional staffer and Democratic Party fundraiser in the 1980s. He currently serves on the board of National Democratic Institute for International Affairs. In 2001, Warner campaigned for governor as a moderate Democrat after years of slowly building up a power base in rural Virginia, particularly Southwest Virginia. He defeated Republican candidate Mark Earley, the state Attorney General, with 52.16 percent, a margin of 96,943 votes. In the same election, Republican Jerry Kilgore was elected attorney general, and Democrat Tim Kaine was elected lieutenant governor.

Warner's popularity helped Democrats gain seats in the Virginia House of Delegates in 2003 and again in 2005, reducing the majorities built up by Republicans in the 1990s. Warner chaired the National Governors Association in 2004-2005 and led a national high school reform movement. He also chaired the Southern Governors' Association and was a member of the Democratic Governors Association. In January 2005, a two-year study (Government Performance Project), graded each state in four management areas: money, people, infrastructure and information. Virginia and received the highest ratings average and a A- rating overall, this led to calling Virginia "the best managed state in the nation."

Warner declared on September 13, 2007 that he would run for Senate in 2008.

Warner immediately gained the endorsement of most national Democrats. He held a wide lead over his Republican opponent, fellow former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore, for virtually the entire campaign.

Warner delivered the keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

In a Washington Post/ABC News Poll dated Wednesday, September 24, Warner was up 30 points over Gilmore.

In the November election, Warner defeated Gilmore in a rout, taking 65 percent of the vote to Gilmore's 34 percent. Warner carried all but four counties in the state—Rockingham, Augusta, Powhatan and Hanover. In many cases, he ran up huge margins in areas of the state that have traditionally voted Republican. This was the most lopsided margin for a contested Senate race in Virginia since Chuck Robb took 72 percent of the vote in 1988.

Warner's victory means Virginia has two Democratic Senators for the first time since 1970.

Outside of politics Warner grows 15 acres of grapes for Ingleside Vineyards at his Virginia farm; Ingleside bottles a private label that Warner offers at charity auctions.

President Obama

As President, there are few responsibilities more serious or consequential than the naming of a Supreme Court Justice, so I want to take this opportunity to tell you about the qualifications and character that informed my decision to nominate Judge Sotomayor.

Judge Sotomayor's brilliant legal mind is complemented by the practical lessons that can only be learned by applying the law to real world situations.

In the coming days, the hearings will cover an incredible body of work from a judge who has more experience on the federal bench than any incoming Supreme Court Justice in the last 100 years. Judge Sotomayor's professional background spans our judicial system — from her time as a big-city prosecutor and a corporate litigator, to her work as a federal trial judge on the U.S. District Court, and an appellate judge on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

And then there is Judge Sotomayor's incredible personal story. She grew up in a housing project in the South Bronx — her parents coming to New York from Puerto Rico during the Second World War. At the age of nine, she lost her father, and her mother worked six days a week just to put food on the table. It takes a certain resilience and determination to rise up out of such circumstances, focus, work hard and achieve the American dream.

In Judge Sotomayor, our nation will have a Justice who will never forget her humble beginnings, will always apply the rule of law, and will be a protector of the Constitution that made her American dream and the dreams of millions of others possible. As she said so clearly yesterday, Judge Sotomayor's decisions on the bench "have been made not to serve the interests of any one litigant, but always to serve the larger interest of impartial justice."

In anticipation of today's first round of questioning, I hope you'll share this email widely, because Judge Sotomayor's confirmation is something that affects every American. It's important for these hearings to be about Judge Sotomayor's own record and her capacity for the job — not any political back and forth that some in Washington may use to distract you. What members of the Judiciary Committee, and the American people, will see today is a sharp and fearless jurist who does not let powerful interests bully her into breaking from the rule of law.

Thank you,

Barack Obama

Jeff Price back on the farm


This week I found myself back on the farm.

As many people know, I grew up on a farm and farming is in my blood. My mom's father worked his land his entire life, as his father and his father's father did. My dad's dad (the Price that literally put "Price's Store" on the map) continues to farm the same 200 acres he started 50 years ago. Three of my uncles still farm for a living.

I was reminded this week of a Saturday that I spent helping my grandfather on the farm. Most weekends, I was carrying brick and mortar for my dad on the jobsite. But this weekend, I was staying with my granddad and lending a hand around the farm.

We were down at the creek, pitching fence posts across. Just then, a fencepost snagged my shirt and ripped it clean in half. I threw down the post and exclaimed, "Granddaddy, I've done torn a fifteen dollar shirt!". For the next four years, this story became one of his favorites.

Both of my grandfather's were livestock farmers, so, growing up I wasn't exposed to dairy farming. That's why I considered myself fortunate to visit Mountain View Farms (a family dairy in Fairfield) this week.

I was at Mountain View Farms in Fairfield. For their delicious products, visit:

After a generous sampling of some of the best cheeses I've ever eaten, we discussed the trials facing today's family farmer. We discussed the role state government should play in making it easier for a family farmer to make a dollar. We also talked about concerns that the average age of Virginia's family farmer is 57 years old.

Finally, we wondered about the future of agriculture and small family farming.

If there is one thing I've learned from my experience in historic preservation, once you lose something, it's gone forever. We must protect our farming lifestyle now before it is just a distant memory. I pledge, if elected, to work my hardest to be the delegate our farmers can depend on for the preservation and prosperity of our commonwealth's rural heritage and top industry.

So, that's the update for the week.

Let me know how I can be of service,

Jeff Price
