Va. Gov.: Bluegrass in Galax
Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine and Gov. Mark Warner were greeted in Galax by the Galax Little Leaves, a group of youngsters who welcomed the two Democrats to town with bluegrass music.
The politicians proceeded into the Rex, a local music theater that had the Warner/Kaine campaign swing promoted on the marquee next to tomorrow night's act -- the Cherry Holmes Family.
The stage was decorated with hay bales and pumpkins, and Warner received a standing ovation when introduced by Mayor C.M. Mitchell.
Mitchell said Warner has legitimate appeal in rural areas because "he's real," adding that he would like to see Warner take it to the next level with a national campaign.
Kaine took to the Rex's stage to join the local band -- No Speed Limit -- on a version of "Will the Circle be Unbroken." Kaine played along on harmonica.
"When you see me play the harmonica, you'll know why I'm in politics," Kaine joked.
Take-out barbecue from the Galax Smokehouse for lunch ...
