The race for Virginia's Fifth Congressional District is heating up, as Governor Kaine announced his endorsement of Al Weed on Thursday.

The weed campaign held a fundraiser at the C&O Gallery on Water Street.

The event featured a speech from Kaine.

Weed said he was feeling especially with the governor's support.

More than 150 people attended the fundraiser.

A weed campaign spokesperson said they expected to raise $25,000.

Recent polls show the gap between Weed and incumbent Virgil Goode tightening, although Weed still lags by double digits.
