U.S. Sen. Mark Warner on Senate election outcome, Ed Gillespie

mark warnerEarlier today, Ed Gillespie called to inform me that he would be conceding the election, and I commended him on a hard-fought campaign and wish him and his family well. I am sure Ed Gillespie will continue to contribute to the debate in Virginia and the nation.

Representing Virginia has been the honor of my life, and I am gratified that the people of the Commonwealth have rehired me for a new term. On Tuesday, Virginians sent an unmistakable message both to me and Congress as a whole: end the gridlock and get to work.

I will spend every day working to get the Senate back in the business of solving problems and not simply scoring political points. I will work with anyone, Republican or Democrat, to shake-up this dysfunctional Congress and move us toward common ground.  Fixing our nation’s balance sheet remains a top priority of mine, and I believe tackling our $17 trillion debt demands thoughtful action before sequestration budget cuts come rushing back next year.

It is time to show the American people that we can govern responsibly.

– Statement from U.S. Sen. Mark Warner
