Mark Warner spent ten million dollars of his own money and lost, but by such an unexpectedly slim margin, he knew his own political capital had actually gone up in defeat.
[sot tape 96-11 5:21 ]

((MARK WARNER: STOCKS GO UP AND DOWN, BUT I THINK I MAY BE A LONG TERM HOLD.))
[runs= 04 ]


The son of a Republican insurance salesman and a homemaker mom, Warner's always been a motivated organizer.
He was high school class president without even campaigning, his friends say, because his reputation for getting things done was so solid.
He's the first in his family to go to college, picking George Washington University to be close to politics, then Harvard Law School, to understand the law.
But then in the early 80s, he saw an opportunity that would make the road into politics so much easier.
The then-legal, now-banned auctioning of licenses for things called "cell phones" made him millions.
But today, as the rich guy on the campaign trail, it's not all fun and games.

Plaintiff Mike Turman, owner of Turman Lumber and Defendant Mary Ann Capp, a private landowner, are disputing the use of a 3-hundred foot road.

Capp says the road is her private property and wants Turman's logging trucks to stop traveling on it. The vehicles use the road to reach the company's logging operation at the top of the mountain. In court today, Turman argued he has a right of way for the road. Witnesses testified about his property boundaries and that people have been using the disputed road to reach their land up the mountain for years. Capp's attorney argued the plaintiff did not prove continuous use as required by law for right of way. The defense will put on its case tomorrow morning.
