The article reports on the impact of Senator John Warner's resignation to the legislators in the U.S. The announcement made by Warner regarding his resignation made his seat as a 2008 battleground and sent the House Grand Old Party's (GOP's) most tenuous Virginia seat into a coalesce. It notes that Representative Tom Davis' entry into the race forces the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) to defend a genuine swing district that Davis carried for years.
