The Mark Warner road show & revival

Mark Warner is, no doubt, popular in these parts and his appearance at the Floyd Country Store Friday night to support area Democrats in next week's election was part political rally and part old-time revival.

The former governor and candidate for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat of John Warner increased the frenzy level of the already-frenzied Friday Night Jamboree.

Shot a lot of photos Friday night, including several of Warner and Gov. Tim Kaine playing (so to speak) with The Jugbusters on the Jamboree stage.

Still processing them. Will post more this weekend.

  1. Hey can’t a guy have a little fun?

    I’m tickled that these folks can come to town like the rest of our guests and get real.

    The Commonwealth has enough problems with decrepit infrastructure, dirty dealing through Washington and adapting to changing times. These guys have done alot to recover us from the bankrupt policies of Gilmore and Allen.

    Take a look at the new downtown, we are getting some of our tax money back for a change. Enjoy the Jamboree along with the new parking, and repairs to our old buildings. Not to mention repairs to what were failing bridges.

    I don’t need to be told what to think about politicos. Long as they show up and listen they should be welcome.
    Let’s not forget this is campaign season. Press the flesh and get on with it. After reading the nasty mail that Evan and Poindexter sent out I am real fed up.

    This time around I’m voting Democratic, the elephant has screwed it bad, and if we don’t get back on track we’re in for tough times.

  2. And how better to get to know a little bit about your choices of candidates and what issues that candidate supports, then for them to come for a visit and spend some time with you. One of our country’s biggest problems is that we often vote for people we know nothing about, except the party they’re from and a paid TV sound bite.

    Just my opinion of course, but I believe in voting for the candidate who supports my issues, no matter what they look like, how well they play, or what party they are from. And for the most part if you ask a candidate a direct question face to face, about where he/she stands on an issue, they will tell you. If they don’t, beware. It sounds like a great get together to me, wish I was there.

  3. I’ve lived close enough to cattle farms for twenty years to recognize the smell of bull—- in the air. Shades of Kennedy and Clinton….these cretins sucking up to the people of southwest Virginia is nauseating
