Mark Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2008 and serves on the Senate's Banking, Budget, Commerce, and Intelligence committees. Senator Warner has established himself as a national leader in efforts to find bipartisan consensus to create solutions to reduce the federal debt.

From 2002 to 2006, Senator Warner served as governor of Virginia, where he helped turn a record budget deficit into a surplus. Governor Warner also focused on improving public education and expanding economic opportunity, and he recruited 135,000 new jobs to Virginia during his four-year term. When Governor Warner left office in 2006, Virginia was recognized as the nation's "best-managed state," the "best state for business," and the state that offered the best educational opportunities to its young people.

Before entering public office, Senator Warner was an early leader in the cellular phone business. He co-founded the company that became Nextel, and then made early investments in hundreds of start-up companies that created tens-of-thousands of private sector jobs.

Senator Warner, his wife Lisa Collis, and their three daughters live in Alexandria, Virginia.
