Remembering Elizabeth Taylor as a senator’s wife

Virginia may not be known for glitz and glamour, but we are always top of mind when it comes to politics!  But, there was a short time that Hollywood came to town and Virginia was all a frenzy.  Former Senator John Warner was introduced to Elizabeth Taylor by the Queen of England in 1976.  In just one short year, the two married and embarked upon the campaign trail after the tragic death of then Senator Rick Obenshain.  Virginians became obsessed with Taylor sightings in Middleburg, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Apparently, Taylor never became accustom to being a politicians wife and the two had an amicable divorce in 1982.
