Coffee and campaigning. Former Governor Mark Warner swings through Charlottesville as he campaigns for a Senate seat.
CBS19 was there as he talked about energy and crossing party lines.
Governor Warner came into town Sunday night to do some fundraising.
Monday, he'll spend a good part of the day popping in and meeting with people in Charlottesville Monday morning. Now he's headed for Scottsville, and later on he'll be in Nelson County.
Warner spoke with supporters at Cville Coffee talking about everything from campaigning against his rival, Jim Gilmore, to making it his goal to cross party lines if he lands a Senate seat.
Warner says campaigning face-to-face helps him reach out to his supporters.
"I love the part of campaigning where you actually get to meet people, hear about their concerns, talk about what you want to do," said Mark Warner. "I''m tired of politics in the country being driven by the loudest voices on either end of the extreme. The chance to kind of make the case to people is the part I enjoy."
Democrat Mark Warner has a day of campaigning ahead of him in Central Virginia.
His Republican rival, Jim Gilmore, got a head start this weekend, as he did some fundraising in Fluvanna County.
On Wednesday, the politicking continues, as first lady hopeful Michelle Obama heads into Charlottesville.
