As Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) prepares for his re-election bid this year, he enjoys some high favorability ratings among Virginia voters. A January poll from Christopher Newport University reported that 63 percent of Virginia voters approved of his work as a Senator, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.

But, according to National Journal Hotline’s chief political correspondent Alex Roarty, Republicans still hope their expected candidate — former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie — can beat him, by focusing on policy rather than personality. He talks with WAMU host Matt McCleskey about the Republicans' campaign strategy in Virginia and around the country.
