Warner Courts Bloggers

Gov. Mark Warner is slated to host a lunch Saturday June 10th at the Yearly Kos convention in Las Vegas. This gathering will be a whos-who of on-line progressive activists. One would think the liberal blogosphere would have little in common with the red state governor. Refusing to count anyone out is actually Warner's style, or so to speak his MO. However showing his sincerity and open/thoughtful side has won over bigger detractors before.

You would have thought the self made millionaire Democratic nominee would have had very little in common with rural Virginia voters, and maybe you would be right. But he courted those voters non-stop, and he just keep showing up talking to them about their issues. On election night, he did something no other southern Democratic gubenatorial candidate has done in the last twenty years. He won 51% of the rural Virginia vote. I certainly don't count the blogosphere out.
