The candidates in Virginia's US Senate race are reaching out to voters this weekend.
With democrat Mark Warner planning three stops around the area Monday, Republican Jim Gilmore spoke with voters Saturday morning in Fork Union. Gilmore touched on a number of issues --chief among them tackling those high gas prices.
"We are very vulnerable on energy, and we have to have a decisive new energy policy for the people of the United States," said Gilmore. "With renewable resources, conservation, nuclear, coal, new refineries, but above all drilling for oil now, here in the United States. It'll make us freer, and safer, and reduce gas prices immediately."
Gilmore has trimmed what was once more than a 30 point gap in the polls. He now trails Warner by 21 points in the most recent polling.
