Former Republican Sen. John W. Warner on Monday endorsed his Democratic successor over a past national GOP chairman in the race for the U.S. Senate seat he held for 30 years.
Warner told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he is supporting Sen. Mark Warner, who is being challenged by Ed Gillespie in November's election. The Warners are not related.

OMG!! He is DISGUSTING!!
Is he the one who was married to Elizabeth Taylor?
I didn’t know he was still alive.
Yes. I think Liz was his beard. I think John was really after Michael Jackson.
Ask him tomorrow, and he'll be endorsing Barney Fife.
I am so disgusted by the GOP-e. They are worse than Democrats because they are traitors.
Yes....he must have caught his Liberalism from her.
And people wonder why this country has gone down hill so badly.
These people we sickos. Ed gillespie is as mainstream as it gets for a GOP candidate. Sort of like colon Powell endorsing Obama over his old buddy McCain. They are disloyal fools.
John Warner is an absolutely worthless POS.
Could it be that Gillespie isn’t as bad as we think he is?
See? These people are making our point for us.
So....tell me again how a RINO is different than a RAT?
GDit John Warner you back stabbing POS!!! Don’t go away mad, just go away! Must be suffering from Goldwater milk toast disease that Barry suffered from in his old age.
Barry went from “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
To “Everyone knows that gays have served honorably in the military since at least the time of Julius Caesar.” He also said, “You don’t need to be ‘straight’ to fight and die for your country. You just need to shoot straight.” A few years before his death he went so far as to address establishment Republicans by saying, “Do not associate my name with anything you do. You are extremists, and you’ve hurt the Republican party much more than the Democrats have.”
I am not sure there is better evidence that “moderate” Republicans are not “moderate” at all, but rather liberal statists who lied about who they really are.
“I am not sure there is better evidence that moderate Republicans are not moderate at all, but rather liberal statists who lied about who they really are.”
Yup! Lugar endorses Nunn in GA and Warner endorses Warner in VA.
Right now I’d love to see the roll call of the self-described “sensible” and “practical” Freepers who despise and condemn those of us they see as waging a war of “purity” on our potential candidates.
Tom Coburn, John Cornyn, Marco Rubio, John McCain and those who support him, Chris Collins, Gerlach, Dave Camp, Mike Kelly, Peter King, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, the list goes on and on and one—they would all rather vote with the Democrats!
They just can’t get away with it—unlike Warner—YET!!
That a former U.S. Senator could endorse a candidate from the other party, after having taken money, etc. from his own party, suggests 1 of 2 things:
1) Mental instability/senility (given his age); or
2) That the SOB was simply using the Republican Party machinery and money to further his personal goals.
Either way, why would any Republican in Virginia, or anyone who is even somewhat conservative, listen to him? He’s either mentally-impaired or a self-serving traitor.
..... The problem with the GOP and their concept of teamwork ............. they keep helping the other team!
John Warner has a rep as a vengeful and vindictive pr*ck. Gillespie probably did something to tick him off 20 years ago or so.
In fact, did Gillespie play some role in the Ollie North Senate Campaign back in 1994? Warner was FURIOUS about that, it would be the place I’d start looking for this being personal revenge rather than ideological.
