    If Mrs. Clinton is forced to drop out of the 2016 presidential race due to her illnesses, and the Democrats choose centrists Mark Warner, Tim Kaine, or Claire McCaskill to replace her, would the Democratic base be enthusiastic, or would their turnout drop to where Mr. Donald Trump wins in a landslide?

    Word is that Hillary Clinton will announce her vice presidential choice on Friday, and rumors that she’s going with a “safe” pick should worry Democrats. In this political climate, a search for “safety” could put her candidacy in serious danger. Change vs. the status quo. The GOP chose Mike Pence in part because his extremist views will reassure the Republican base. Pence is also an seasoned politician whose nomination is meant to reassure voters who worry that Trump has no experience in statecraft or governance. (Note to readers: Yes, I just used the words “Trump” and “statecraft” in the same...

    Sing the song, blow out the candles, eat the cake and unwrap the gifts. According to a court filing on Monday, music publisher Warner/Chappell will pay $14 million to end a lawsuit challenging its hold on the English language's most popular song, "Happy Birthday to You." Additionally, the settlement stipulates a proposed final judgment and order that would declare the song to be in the public domain. A memorandum in support of the settlement sings the praises of the deal as "truly, an historic result." U.S. District Judge George H. King will have to sign off on it. The revelation...

    Senator Mark Warner ^ | June, 2015 | Unattributed
    Whether by economic necessity or by choice, as many as one-third of American workers now find themselves piecing together two, three or more on- demand opportunities to make a living. It's called The Gig Economy, or the Sharing Economy. Yet Washington mostly has remained on the sidelines as the U.S. economy, its workforce and the work place, have undergone perhaps the most dramatic transformation in decades. Senator Warner, a former business executive, is committed to bringing this conversation to Washington, working with his colleagues, stakeholders, and the growing “gig economy” workforce, to put forward practical solutions to keep up with...
  • Ed Gillespie concedes Virginia Senate race

    CNN ^ | November 7, 2014 | Eric Bradner
    -- Republican Ed Gillespie conceded the Virginia Senate race Friday to incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Warner. Gillespie said at a Friday afternoon news conference that he had called Warner "congratulating him on his re-election" in a race that turned out to be one of the midterm election's biggest surprises. Polls had shown Warner, a popular former governor who'd been endorsed by his Republican predecessor, ex-Sen. John Warner, with a hefty lead. But Gillespie led Warner for much of the night as returns trickled in Tuesday -- and ultimately ended up trailing by less than one percentage point. Get ready: 2016...

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 5, 2014 | Alex Pappas
    No one expected this race to be this close. Incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Warner and Republican Ed Gillespie are nearly tied in Virginia’s Senate race, according to early returns. With 99 percent of precincts in, Warner leads with 49.1 percent to Gillespie’s 48.5 percent. Speaking to supporters late Tuesday, Gillespie said he wasn’t ready to concede. “We’re going to be patient here. And I believe we need to be respectful of the voters.” “This race is not going to be decided until the last vote is counted,” adviser Mark Obenshain added at the election night celebration. Gillespie shocked observers by...
  • Law sparked by K Street Project scandal may ensnare Warner

    A seven-year-old law created after congressional Republicans pressured lobbying firms to hire their former staffers could be invoked against Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia. Earlier this year, when then-Virginia state senator Phillip Puckett was considering resigning so his daughter could become a state judge without a conflict of interest, Warner intervened in an effort to convince him to stay. In an hour-long conversation, Warner described other job opportunities he could help the state senator's daughter get instead of the state judgeship, Puckett’s son told investigators....

    More voters in 49 of the nation’s 50 states plan to use Election Day to voice opposition to President Obama and his policies than those who want to show support, according to a shocking new poll that suggests the president is hurting Democrats this election season. The president only has support in his birth state of Hawaii, where 27 percent plan to use their vote to show support versus 23 percent who said they will use Election Day as “a vote against Obama and his policies,” according to the poll published by YouGov.com in conjunction with CBS and the New...

    Warner Bros. has filed a lawsuit against a small bar from Amityville, New York, for playing one of their songs without permission. The track in question is not a recent pop song, but the 80-year old love song "I Only Have Eyes for You" which first appeared in Warner's 1934 movie "Dames." giacomoMany bars, pubs and restaurants like to entertain their guests with live music, with bands often playing covers of recent hits or golden oldies. As with all music that’s performed in public, the bar owners are required to pay the royalties, even if there are just handful of...

    Breaking: Partisan gridlock blocks Hobby Lobby bill. Friend, This afternoon, Republicans in the Senate filibustered the bill that would undo the impacts of the recent Hobby Lobby decision. This bill would have ensured that employers can't stand between a woman and her doctor and protected the rights of all employees to have access to basic health care. This partisan gridlock is outrageous. We deserve to have a real debate on this bill, and it deserves to have a vote. Nearly 20,000 supporters like you have added their name demanding action. The momentum is with us to fix this. Today’s filibuster...

    Friend, Add your name today! I was very troubled by the Supreme Court’s recent decision in the Hobby Lobby case. The idea that for-profit corporations can stand in the way of employees accessing basic health care is outrageous. That’s why I’m supporting legislation that would reverse the negative consequences of the Hobby Lobby case. But it’s going to take all of us working together to ensure it passes. Will you join me in calling on Congress to undo the effects of the Hobby Lobby decision? Let me be very clear: a woman should be trusted to make her own healthcare...

    Friend, It's time to fix our country's broken immigration system. I've seen firsthand in Virginia that immigrants make our communities stronger -- they're small business owners, entrepreneurs, agricultural workers, top students, neighbors and community leaders. Millions of young people were brought to this country illegally as children and have lived as Americans but have no path to citizenship. We train many of the world's best and brightest and then send them back to create jobs in other countries. It is absolutely clear that our immigration system is broken and something must be done to fix it. That's why I'm supporting...
