to get things done and his vision for the future made the U.S. Senate race one that is
being watched around the country.
Were you able to make the Rally for Mark Warner on October 30th? (Press HERE for pictures.)
Julian Bond was there? Emily Couric was there. Rod Slayton was there. Mark Warner was there. Doug Wilder was there.
Where, oh where, was Virgil Goode?
Sorry that I had to miss the rally on Wednesday. I had been in Charlottesville on Monday morning then again on Tuesday to visit GE and Sperry and meet with employees there.
I had the rally scheduled for Saturday and had planned to attend but when Mark needed to move it to Wednesday I couldn't change a longstanding commitment in Danville.
We had a great crowd this morning (October 31, 1996) in Martinsville for Mark and myself - probably 150. We'll hold up our end down here and are counting on you to do the same! Thanks again for all of your help.
In Charlottesville ( Unofficial results, Daily Progress, November 6, 1996):
SENATE: Mark Warner (D) 7,424;
John Warner (R) 5,255.
"Mark Warner wound up spending $8.96 of his own money for every one of his 1,115,983 votes. The incumubent (John Warner) 's campaign spent $4 per vote, garnering 1,235,744 votes" (The Washington Post, December 6, 1996). Ah, the power of incumbency!
