Politifact Virginia: Senator Mark Warner and democratic leaders

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

In this week's Politifact Virginia report, is Senator Mark Warner tied to the hips of President Obama and Harry Reid? His Republican challenger Ed Gillespie sure thinks so. Take a listen to what he said on Fox News Channel.

"I would not support the president's policies down the line and Harry Reid down the line, as Mark Warner has," said Ed Gillespie, candidate for U.S. Senate.

Is that true? Is Mark Warner a down the line supporter of democratic leaders in D.C.? Well according to the reporters at Politifact, that claim is half true and Sean Gorman broke that support down by the numbers. 

"These two senators vote together 87% of the time, but we found that Warner was the 9th from the bottom in terms of having a similar voting record to Reid," said Gorman.
