McDonnell campaigns for candidates in Tuesday's special elections
Gov. Bob McDonnell will hit the campaign trail Sunday for Republicans running in a pair of special elections Tuesday.
McDonnell will appear at an afternoon rally with lawyer Greg Habeeb at his headquarters in Salem. Habeeb faces Democrat Ginger Mumpower in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Morgan Griffith (R) in the largely Republican-leaning district that includes Salem and part of Roanoke County.
Then, the governor is off to a fundraiser for lawyer Bill Stanley in Danville. Stanley faces Pittsylvania Board of Supervisors Chairman Hank Davis (D) in the election to replace U.S. Rep. Robert Hurt (R) in the district that comprises Franklin and Pittsylvania counties, part of Campbell County and Danville.
The winners in Tuesday's elections will be sworn in when the General Assembly returns for its 46-day session Wednesday.
