SEN. MARK WARNER
Great news reported by James Bacon on his Virginia blog, www.BaconsRebellion.com - Virginia Senator Mark Warner has endorsed the construction of the long-delayed Outer Beltway, that would create at least one new Potomac River bridge.
Although many pundits declared Warner's presidential aspirations over after his 2008 DNC convention speech, others mention him as a 2016 contender. Strong leadership decisions like this will certainly make a more compelling case for his candidacy.
Sen. Warner says what I and others have been saying: if we don't build the Outer Beltway, Montgomery County will continue to lose jobs and corporate headquarters to other jurisdictions.
His endorsement is a huge boost of momentum for the Outer Beltway, as Warner is highly respected by the powers-that-be in the DC Metro area.
