Democratic nominee for the US Senate in 1986. Weaver withdrew from the race on 8/12/1986. He had borrowed $80,000 from his campaign for an investment, which he subsequently lost. The transfer of funds came to the notice of a US House ethics panel.

He announced his candidacy on 4/8/2002 (Albany [OR] Democrat-Herald, 4/9/2002) but withdrew on 8/19/2002 for fear that his candidacy would result in the election of a Republican governor (Corvallis Gazette-Times, 8/20/2002).

Weaver was a resident of Eugene until his death.
