In just under 24 hours, if the process goes smoothly, voters should know who will be moving into the Executive Mansion come January.
On the eve of election night, with his puppy nearby, Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Cuccinelli rallied supporters at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, drilling in his message and calling his biggest rival, Democrat Terry McAuliffe fiscally irresponsible and an outsider.
“He sleeps in Virginia, but, he’s from Washington and I got a border plan. It’s to keep Terry McAullife’s DC politics on the other side of the Potomac,” says Cuccinelli.
Ron Paul spoke almost twice the amount of time as Cuccinelli, whose voice sounded strained, probably after days of non-stop campaigning.
A few hours before, McAuliffe was shoring up his base of supporters, campaigning with Vice President Joe Biden, repeating the message he’s been giving all along and linking Cuccinelli to the government shutdown and painting him as a divisive leader. “
Could you imagine if Ted Cruz and Ken Cuccinelli and the Tea Party ran the VA government?” asked McAuliffe.
Rarely mentioned in the political fray, Libertarian Candidate, Robert Sarvis.
He wrapped up his campaigning in Charlottesville Monday night after spending some time at the 17th Street Farmers’ Market in Richmond, making sure the public knows there is a third option.
“The Republican and Democratic Party nominated two candidates who people just do not like and do not want,” says Sarvis.
While each candidate has their own distinct talking points, they did share one common message, make sure you have everything you need when heading to the polls to cast your vote.
