Warner, Gillespie Face Off

Senator Mark Warner and his Republican challenger, Ed Gillespie, faced off for the first time July 25 at the Virginia Bar Association debate at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs,West Virginia. Much of the debate centered on healthcare reform, with Gillespie targeting Warner for his role in the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which the Republican candidate says fails to bring down healthcare costs.

Gillespie said he wants to replace Obamacare with market oriented solutions but has yet to produce a plan.

Warner says Americans don’t want to return to the broken system that existed before the bill’s passage.
