OOPS! CORRECTION: Per Senator Mark Warner’s Press Secretary the location for the lunch is yet to be determined.
It sure sounded like lunch at the Weiner Stand to me. I think I’m actually disappointed and hope they will consider Roanoke’s favorite eatery for the losers.
EARLIER: I thought this was an interesting contest for Roanokers. A treat for you to have lunch with Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine at Roanoke’s Weiner Stand. It doesn’t say when it is but there is a cutoff date of June 15 to enter the contest.
You don’t have to contribute to win and I’m not sure how roundtrip tickets to the Weiner Stand will work for Roanokers. You have to chuckle a bit. The photo above is one I took when Tim Kaine was running for Senate and they both stopped off at the Weiner Stand. Our local broadcast media practically stuck the camera in their face as they tried to eat their dogs. It didn’t seem to phase them though.
So enter the contest and you too can have a camera shoved up your nose.
WARNING: You will be subject to a background check.
Today Senator Mark Warner launched a new contest for a chance to win a special campaign lunch with him and Sen. Tim Kaine at one of their favorite spots. See below for more details:
Your lunch is on us
I never miss a chance to grab a hot dog at the Weiner Stand in Roanoke.
Over the past 25 years I’ve spent time in every locality in the Commonwealth over and over again – and I’ve discovered that Virginia is home to some of the best local diners and eating spots in the world.
On an upcoming stop, I’d like to treat you to a special campaign lunch at one of my favorite places. And my longtime friend and colleague, Senator Tim Kaine, has asked to tag along as well.
While the other side relies on big special interest money, supporters like you are making the difference for our campaign.
P.S. To sweeten the deal, we’ll cover airfare and hotel for you and a guest. Don’t miss out, enter today.
