John Warner is going to announce his retirement tomorrow. I for one will have good reason to celebrate.
From his troublesome vacillating on the illegal alien issue, to his joining with Diane Feinstein and Chuck Schumer to rob citizens of their Second Amendment rights, to his recent commitment to American defeat in Iraq, John Warner has done his very best to contribute to the demise of our republic. Now the jockeying for position begins, with prominent Republicans and Democrats feverishly trying to position themselves for a run at this Senate seat, if John Warner does in fact announce his retirement. Jim Gilmore, Tom Davis, and Mark Warner are expected to contend for this seat, and there are plenty of others who might join the fray.
If Warner doesn’t retire, which no one really expects, many prominent Republicans are likely going to jump to the sidelines and defer to our Senior Senator. In that unlikely case, if none of those challengers who would be so eager to vie for an open seat are willing to step up to challenge John Warner for the Republican nomination, I’m pretty sure there is at least one potential candidate who will buck the system and take him on.
Soon, we’ll know for sure.
