  • Among 508 Republicans and those who lean Republican, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (at 47%) leads Sen. John McCain (16%) and former Sen. Fred Thompson (15%) in a statewide primary; former Gov. Mitt ROmney trails at 5%.

Comments
Andrew:

When he was governor, Warner lowered income and food tax while he increased sales tax necessary to turn a $6 billion budget deficit into a surplus for VA. An independent commission found that VA was (tied with Utah) the best managed state in the Nation during his tenure.

Warner should be elected easily.
