McAuliffe To Hit Campaign Trail Saturday

Tim Craig

Terry McAuliffe, a potential Democratic candidate for governor next year, will kick off his two-month listening tour this weekend.

McAuliffe, who plans to announce Jan. 7 whether he will enter the race, will have breakfast with Prince William County Democrats tomorrow morning in Occoquan.

McAuliffe will then attend the Norfolk State University vs. Delaware State football game in Norfolk.

"Terry will be rooting on the Norfolk State Spartans," his campaign said in a statement.

McAuliffe will end his day by attending a black-tie gala in Portsmouth to raise money for scholarships.

McAuliffe's visit to Hampton Roads appears to be an effort to target African Americans. A Washington Post survey last month showed McAuliffe running particulary strong among black females although black males favored Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria), who is also a candidate for the nomination.

The poll also showed Moran with a slim overall lead statewide, but he and McAuliffe were tied in Hampton Roads.
