Republican’s are pulling out all the stops leading into Tuesday’s election. At a rally in Lynchburg Sunday afternoon, Governor Bob McDonnell, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and other Republican Party leaders took to the stage at a get out the vote rally. Going into the final countdown, Congressman Robert Hurt says turnout is important in this election.
“The big deal is calling you neighbors your friends and neighbors and getting them to the polls because it will be a lower turnout and whoever can turn out there team is going to do real well,” says Robert Hurt.
The other message leaders were trying to get out to people, is the importance of electing republicans into office.
“Our challenge our opportunity is to take the state senate to send some folks back to Richmond with Steve Newman who has done a great job in the Lynchburg area in the state senate, is to send Tom Garrett to go with him,” says Hurt.
Congressman Goodlatte agrees; in order for the governor to get things done, more republicans need to be elected.
“We don’t need gridlock in Richmond we need to get some things done. Lots of things that the governor has been working on, he needs a senate that will work with him and Tom Garrett and Dave Nutter and Ralph Smith will help provide that for him,” says Goodlatte.
