Mark Warner Denounces Obama Administration's Offshore Drilling Ban

Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner yesterday denounced the Obama Adminstration's ban on offshore drilling.  His office said Senator Warner is disappointed in the decision, and issued the following statement:

“Mid-Atlantic coastal oil and gas production does not represent a ‘silver bullet’ solution to our energy challenges, and while it is appropriate to take the time to incorporate lessons learned from the Gulf disaster, Senator Warner sees no reason to delay this process for what realistically could be another seven years or more.
“Senator Warner will continue to work with Governor McDonnell and other state and local officials, as well as the bipartisan Virginia delegation, to explore ways to re-examine this decision.”
 I would imagine more and more Democrats will seek to distance themselves from Obama over the next two years.
