Perriello Makes 20+ Stops in Twenty-Four Hour Campaign Blitz

October 25, 2010

Congressman Tom Perriello made several stops across the fifth district during his "Twenty-Four Hours of Tom" campaign blitz.

The twenty-four hour shift began in in the south part of the district, where Perriello made stops in Danville and Appomattox.

"We know this district never sleeps, we know a lot of people are putting in two shifts just to make ends meet. We wanted to go out and meet workers and families where they are," said Perriello.

Monday afternoon, Perriello visited Scottsville, where he met with local business owners. He also made a stop in Ivy, where the congressional candidate loaded produce at Local Food Hub.

Monday night, Perriello stopped at the University of Virginia where he participated in a debate with independent candidate Jeff Clark.

Republican candidate, Robert Hurt, chose not to participate in the debate. He referred to Perriello's campaign blitz as a "cheap political gimmick." Hurt also said, "The Fifth District can not afford another twenty-four hours of Tom."

Perriello will make his final campaign stop at the Wild Wing Cafe for Monday Night Football.
