Warner hears from Galax community

“I can’t think of a time when there’s been more unease in our political system than right now,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) at a meeting with local leaders Aug. 16 in Galax.

“It’s almost like our democracy’s being tested at this point.”

Warner, U.S. Senator from Virginia and its former governor, was late to arrive at The Crossroads Institute, but stayed over to answer a few extra questions when prompted by his aides to leave.
