Ex-Dem Presidential Candidate Mark Warner To Make Triumphant Return?
Former Gov. Mark Warner is expected to announce within two weeks that he "is getting back into state politics in a major way," according to Gov. Tim Kaine.
There has been speculation that Warner, a Democrat, will seek the seat held by Sen. John Warner, who announced Friday that he will retire from the U.S. Senate at the end of his term in January 2009.
Kaine, however, would not elaborate on whether Mark Warner will announce he is running for the Senate seat or a second term as governor.
In Virginia, governors are prohibited from succeeding themselves.
