Moran Travels Home to Alexandria
Brian Moran of Alexandria chose to spend the final day before the election in his hometown, rallying about 250 supporters over the lunch hour in front of Alexandria City Hall in Old Town.
Glistening under a blazing sun, Moran stuck with the left-leaning message he has trumpeted for much of the campaign: promises to expand access to medical and dental care, push a transportation plan through the legislature, block off-shore drilling and repeal a constitutional amendment that prohibits gay marriage.
"All along 've been talking to voters about just how important this election is," Moran boomed to the crowd, flanked by more than a dozen local elected officials who support him. "We made history electing Barack Obama in the fall, but we need a partner for President Obama in the governor's office, and I intend to be that governor."
Later in the day, in a series of radio and television interviews broadcast from a studio in Loudoun County, Moran got tough against his two opponents. To a Richmond news station, Moran criticized Deeds for voting against a ban on guns in restaurants. He criticized McAuliffe, too, for boasting of job creation despite having never hired employees in Virginia.
"The polls have been very, very volatile," Moran said. "The only poll that counts is on Election Day. I feel real good about tomorrow."
