Virginia's top Republicans on statewide get-out-the-vote tour
Gov. Bob McDonnell, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will fly around the state Sunday and Monday as part of a last-minute push to get out the vote Tuesday for Republicans in tight races.
On Sunday, the three will rally with Keith Fimian, challenging Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) in the 11th District; state Sen. Robert Hurt, running against U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello (D) in the 5th District and House of Delegates Majority Leader Morgan Griffith, who is challenging Rep. Rick Boucher (D) in the 9th District. Monday, they will appear with Scott Rigell, who is running against Rep. Glenn Nye in the 2nd District.
McDonnell, Bolling and Cuccinelli will be joined by Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, and on two stops by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who faces no serious opposition.
This week, McDonnell, Bolling and Cuccinelli also have been holding a series of campaign events and fundraisers with the candidates.
