(AP) Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mark Warner is calling for a gradual and careful withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, defraying America's exploding debt and restoring the nation's aging infrastructure.
Warner addressed about 350 people in a Roanoke fire station Monday on the second day of a 12-city tour that opens his Senate bid.
The former Virginia governor provided few specifics for withdrawing American forces.
He said he wouldn't favor a timetable for troop withdrawal, saying it "depends on how things are on the ground."
Warner planned three more stops Monday and more on Tuesday and Wednesday. He is uncontested for the Democratic nomination to succeed Republican Sen. John W. Warner. The men aren't related.
