Partisanship an Issue at Warner-Gillespie Forum
Sept. 19, 2014
HERNDON, Virginia — U.S. Senator Mark Warner and Republican challenger Ed Gillespie are trading accusations that the other candidate is too partisan.
At a Senate campaign forum Friday, Gillespie said Warner hasn't been the senator he promised to be, and repeatedly tried to tie him to President Barack Obama's policies.
Warner, a Democrat, called himself a senator who's worked across party lines. He said that Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chairman, comes from a world where it's all about partisanship.
Friday's event, sponsored by four area chambers of commerce, was not a debate, as the candidates made back-to-back appearances rather than facing off directly.
