Campaign stop

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia) held a meet-and-greet event on Friday afternoon with supporters at The First United Baptist Church in Gloucester. The outside event was held with social distancing, masks and other safety protocols in place. In Virginia, Warner said, we have the tendency to say hyperbolically that every election is the most important, but this year, he said “is the most important election in my lifetime.” At stake, he said, is “what kind of America are we going to have … the heart and soul of who we are as a country is at stake.” Warner is opposed in his reelection bid by Republican hopeful Daniel Gade, who made campaign stops on Aug. 29 in Gloucester and Mathews counties. Above, Pastor E. Randolph Graham of First United introduced Warner at the ceremony. Below, before Warner took the stage, he exchanged elbow bumps with supporters and stopped to take a few masked selfies, including this one with the Rev. Darlene Ward, at left, and Gwenda Fay Graham.
