Warner, a Democrat who had never held elected office before, was sworn in in January.
He immediately faced the challenge of working with a Republican-controlled legislature.

Wilkins has since stepped down amid allegations of sexual harassment.
Warner will face a new Speaker next year along with budget shortfalls due to the state's sagging economy.
