WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mark R. Warner released the following statement after the Senate failed to advance legislation that would raise the minimum wage:

“I support raising the minimum wage, and that’s why I voted today to move forward to a Senate debate. I am open to a discussion about alternative proposals for how and when we raise the minimum wage, and it is unfortunate that we did not reach the 60-vote threshold today to allow that discussion to take place.”
