There was a lot Sen. Mark Warner said in our interview on NBC12 First at 4 today, but is what he refused to say that is perhaps the most telling. Asked directly to rule out a potential run for governor of Virginia in 2013, Warner changed the subjected and reiterated his desire to stay focused on the 2012 election.
Warner admitted that his work in the U.S. Senate is not always that fulfilling, but did say there is work left to be done.
"It's no newsflash that sometimes the work in the Senate frustrates me," Warner said. "But I have a job to do on debt and deficit, If we don't get that fixed, it won't matter whoever the mayor is, whoever the governor is, our country is going to be a lot less prosperous going forward."
