A Democrat who views himself as a bipartisan leader working with Republicans and Democrats, Mark Warner aims to cut red tape, increase government performance and accountability, and promote private sector innovation and job creation. Warner graduated from George Washington University, earning a B.A. in 1977. He was class valedictorian and the first in his family to graduate from college. He earned a J.D. from Harvard Law School and coached the intramural women's basketball team. As founder of Columbia Capital, he invested in several technology companies, including Nextel. He co-founded Capital Cellular, amassing a net worth of more than $200 million. In 2002, Warner was elected Governor of Virginia. A successful governor, his approval ratings reached 74% by 2005. In 2008, Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate with 65% of the vote. He worked with a Republican colleague to write a key portion of the Dodd-Frank Act that seeks to end taxpayer bailouts of failing Wall Street financial firms by requiring “advance funeral plans” for large financial firms. In 2018, Warner supported a bill that would relax “key banking regulations”. He argued that the bill would “right-size post-crisis rules imposed on small and regional lenders and help make it easier for them to provide credit”. Both Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren opposed this legislation. In 2019 Warner criticized Trump for "personally undermining efforts to promote U.S. national security and economic prosperity." Warner is married to Lisa Collins and they have three daughters. He is involved in farming and winemaking at his Rappahannock Bend farm.
