Jill Biden headlines get-out-the-vote effort for Connolly
Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Jill, will launch a get-out-the-vote campaign for Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) Monday morning at the congressman's headquarters.
Biden, a professor of English at Northern Virginia Community College, will kick things off at 11:30 a.m. in Fairfax County.
Over the weekend, more than 1,000 volunteers canvassed and phone banked for Connolly, who faces Republican Keith Fimian in the 11th District race, according to Connolly's campaign. U.S. Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) and other state and local officials from Fairfax and Prince William counties appeared at the events.
Former governor Tim Kaine, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, was expected to spend today and Sunday in Virginia helping Connolly and Rep. Glenn Nye, who is being challenged by Republican Scott Rigell in a tight race in the 2nd District. But folks at the DNC tells us Kaine was diverted to Cleveland to appear with President Obama and addressed rallies for the congressmen by phone instead.
