Senator George Allen ended a busy day of campaigning with a stop at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport before a rowdy crowd of nearly 100 supporters.

The Senator spent time shaking hands, catching up with old friends, and talking issues. His short 10 minute speech focuses on the War in Iraq, job growth here in Virginia, and finding new and creative ways to stimulate alternative energy sources. After a tough month that included several claims of a racist past, Allen says his focus is squarely on the next month of the campaign and the issues at hand.

"This campaign that I know the people of Virginia care about will be focused on issues. It will be focused on particular items. It will be solutions and a proven record of performance and we will win," Allen said.

The latest Mason-Dixon poll showed the race at a statistical dead heat, with both Allen and Democratic Challenger Jim Webb garnering 43 percent of potential voters.

During an one-on-one interview, the Senator fielded questions about a possible Presidential bid in 2008. He kind of chuckled before he answered and said he tries to get through each and every day and he is focused on this campaign at hand.
