Virginia Sen. Mark Warner released a statement this afternoon after the violent, white nationalist protest in Charlottesville, Virginia:

"Virginians mourn the life taken in this morning's events and reject this hateful violence in Charlottesville. We condemn the intolerance behind it and those who would pass it off as a legitimate political movement.
Those who traveled to Virginia to incite unrest don't understand the Virginia-born values that make our country great.
I have been in touch today with the Governor's Office and the Mayor, and stand prepared to help connect them with any additional federal resources that might be needed. My thoughts are with the victims, the great people of Charlottesville, and the police and first responders who restored order. I will continue to monitor the situation in Charlottesville and pray for its peaceful resolution."
