Howie Lind Becomes First Challenger For Senator Warner

A Northern Virginia man is the first Republican candidate in next year’s U.S. Senate race.     Howie Lind of McLean wants to challenge freshman Democrat Mark Warner in the fall of 2014.    Lind says the onetime Governor has accomplished very little since he won his Senate seat in 2008.    Lind chaired the 10th District GOP Committee from 2010 until last year.   Republicans will nominate a Senate candidate next spring.    Warner is running for a second term, and he’s already done some fundraising in the Charlottesville area.    Lind was a Tuesday guest on  the Schilling Show.
