Mark Warner endorses Jon Baliles for Richmond City Council
Jon Baliles has received an endorsement from popular U.S. Senator and former Virginia Governor Mark Warner.
The endorsement was announced at a fundraiser for Baliles held Saturday afternoon at local wine bistro the Barrel Thief.
Jon Baliles is challenging incumbent Bruce Tyler in Richmond's 1st District, a part of the city that Warner carried with a huge margin in 2008. Baliles has pledged "a new generation of positive leadership" for Richmond's City Council, a body that is too often bogged down in petty personal disputes.
