Virginia - A former Virginia Republican Senator is giving his support to his Democratic successor.
John Warner says he's now backing Senator Mark Warner, who is being challenged by Ed Gillespie in November's election.
The two are not related. John Warner says this is the first time he has endorsed a democrat outright.
John Warner defeated Mark Warner in the democrat's first senate campaign in 1996.
