Warner seeks pivot from campaign to governing
The Associated Press
FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner says he's confident that his slim lead over Republican Ed Gillespie will hold up, and that he's eager to return to the Senate and forge a path forward from the political center.
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Warner made no apologies for the way he ran his campaign. He had been expected to win handily, but holds a lead of less than a percentage point over Gillespie.
Warner said he has no doubt his lead of about 16,000 votes, out of 2 million cast, will hold up.
A Gillespie spokesman said the campaign continues to wait for the official numbers to be reported.
