President Clinton is now lending a helping hand to Terry McAuliffe campaign in the form of a three day campaign through the Commonwealth.
With a little over two weeks left in the election season, Democratic candidate for Governor Terry McAuliffe hopes to use this as a final push.
President Bill Clinton is expected to campaign with McAuliffe starting on Sunday, October 27th.
Local democrats are seeing this as an exciting end to the election season.
“Bill Clinton's legacy is of working across the aisle to create jobs and invest in education,” says Mike Signer, member of McAuliffe’s finance committee. “I think he is going to infuse a whole new sense of energy in Terry's campaign.”
Former secretary of state Hilary Clinton announced her endorsement for McAuliffe as governor on Saturday at a campaign event in Falls Church Va.
Over in Lynchburg former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee spoke to a large crowd at Liberty University on Saturday to help out Republican candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli, who is behind McAuliffe in the polls.
“You've got an incredible line up on your team, quality people that will make Virginia proud,” says Huckabee.
According to a recent poll McAuliffe is up nearly 47 percent, Cuccinelli is at 39 percent and Libertarian candidate for Governor Robert Sarvis has 12 percent of Va. voters.
The McAuliffe campaign hopes to stay strong as the election draws near and are hoping that the three day campaign with President Clinton will help to end this election season on a high note.
