Updated: McDonnell, Warner, Webb try to get out vote in Fairfax House election
In the final days before Tuesday's special election, some of Virginia's most prominent politicians are trying to help the candidates in the House of Delegates race in Fairfax County.
Last night, former gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe hosted a fundraiser for Democrat Eileen Filler-Corn at his McLean home with special guest U.S. Sen. Mark Warner. (Does anyone really think McAuliffe isn't running again?)
Tomorrow, it's Sen. Jim Webb's turn. He hosts a get-out-the-vote rally for Filler-Corn at her headquarters while Gov. Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli do the same for GOP candidate Kerry Bolognese at the Fairfax Republican Committee headquarters.
On Sunday, Warner will hold a get-out-the-vote rally outside the Starbucks on Huntsman Boulevard in Springfield.
Filler-Corn, the director of government relations for Albers and Co., an Arlington-based lobbying firm, served as an adviser to Warner and forrmer governor Tim Kaine. Bolognese, a higher-education lobbyist, narrowly lost the seat in November to Dave Marsden.
The 41st House seat opened up when Marsden defeated Republican Steve Hunt by 324 votes in a Senate special election in mid-January.
