Ed Gillespie, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, has announced he is running for the U.S. Senate in Virginia against Democratic senator Mark Warner. He introduces himself and his candidacy in a new ad. Watch it below:

Gillespie says he would pursue policies in the Senate that would "make life better for working families and those who want to work but can't now find a job." He adds that that includes "replacing Obamacare" a law he says "kills jobs" and "costs families the insurance and doctors they like."

"Senator Mark Warner cast the deciding vote for it," he says. "If I were Virginia's senator, it would not be law today."
