Former RNC Chair Ed Gillespie to Challenge Virginia’s Mark Warner in U.S. Senate Bid: VIDEO


Former RNC Chair, Romney advisor, Bush counselor and lobbyist for Enron and big tobacco has announced that he's running for U.S. Senate in Virginia against Democratic Senator Mark Warner.

Politico reports:
