Former Senator John W. Warner Announces Support for John Adams

John Adams, the Republican nominee for attorney general, today announced that former U.S. Senator John W. Warner has stepped forward and joined the growing ranks supporting his campaign. Warner represented Virginia in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 2009, establishing a record as the second-longest serving U.S Senator in Virginia’s history.  Warner has a long association with the U.S. military, having enlisted as a sailor in the U.S. Navy during World War II, as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War, and serving as Under Secretary and Secretary of the U.S. Navy for over five years.

"I am honored to receive Senator Warner’s support,” said Adams. “As a veteran, and long-time principled leader, Warner served our country and Virginia with bold ideas, steadfastness, and integrity."

"We are fortunate to have persons like John Adams, who has earned the respect and trust of the public, step forward and seek the office of attorney general of Virginia," said Warner. "John is an accomplished public servant who likewise served our country in the Navy and as a federal prosecutor.  As he moves forward volunteering for another chapter of public service, I am delighted to support him."

Warner is long remembered in Virginia for leading efforts with other members of Congress to retain Virginia’s strong national defense posture statewide and successfully bring transportation projects such as the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge and the Silver Line of the Metro to meet Virginia’s ever-increasing transportation needs.
