U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D) will officially open his campaign headquarters this coming weekend, in Alexandria. Warner, 59, a resident of Alexandria, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2008.

The campaign office will be open from 2-6 p.m. Sunday at 2034 Eisenhower Ave., Suite 222 in Alexandria. The location is a few blocks from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro station; there is also a parking garage that has free parking.


Warner announced Wednesday that Eva Teig Hardy, a retired vice president of Dominion Resources, will chair his campaign. Trey Nix will be Warner's campaign manager. Nix recently ran Aneesh Chopra's unsuccessful bid to be Virginia's lieutenant governor.

Other Warner campaign staffers include digital director David Stroup, political director Keyanna Conner and press secretary David Turner.

Former RNC chair Ed Gillespie, an Alexandria communications consultant and former White House aide, is running against Warner. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is hosting a fundraiser for Gillespie March 25 in New York.

Warner, one of the wealthiest Senators on Capitol Hill, reportedly has a net worth of $88 million and more than $7 million in a campaign war chest.
