Leslie Byrne and Mark Warner

Leslie Byrne meets with Mark Warner, who would defeat her the next year in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. Warner would go on to lose the election to his Repulican opponent, John Warner (no relation). Byrne was the first woman elected to the U.S. Congress from Virginia, serving from 1993 until 1995.
