Supporters gathered on the downtown mall to in a rally for Jim Webb and what they spoke about is best captured on a four word sign: "Time For A Change."
Just days before the election democrats rallied their base in Charlottesville, trying to grab the remaining undecided.
"I've never really been involved in politics before, but I think that Jim Webb and Al Weed are both going to give us the opportunity to have a balanced Congress again and that's why I'm here," said Charlottesville resident Diane Wakat.
Virginia's 5th District Candidate Al Weed came out swinging against the war in Iraq.
"People are ready for a change. There's blood in the water and it's time for us to take this country back," said Weed.
Former Governor Mark Warner echoed the call for change focusing on the war in Iraq, energy policies, and Republicans' ties to the Bush administration.
"This congress I think will go down in history as one of the worst in modern history. It's been institutionally corrupt, it's had a record that has produced no meaningful results, and unfortunately it's been a total rubber stamp for this President," said Warner.
