Women on all levels in Charlottesville let their voices be heard on who they think the next senator of Virginia should be.

The group 'Women Choose Webb' met inside the Charlottesville Ice Park asking voters to pick Jim Webb for senate on election day.

The women included elected officials, business leaders, and former public officials. Their message praised Webb's stance on issues affecting women.

"We would like to highlight the important of affordable health care, family leave, ending the war, and tuition tax credits, so women can attend the college of their choice," said Susan Payne.

A student activist from the University of Virginia, and a mother of two sets of twins shared their personal stories of how they say Webb could help them.
