GLEN ALLEN, Va. (AP) - Republican Ken Cuccinelli is trying to energize his conservative base with just days before voters choose between him and Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe to become the next governor of Virginia.

Cuccinelli warned supporters on Saturday that McAuliffe would be a threat to the state's coal miners, a backer of unions and beholden to out-of-state supporters. With time ticking down toward Tuesday's election, Cuccinelli is working to inspire every last supporter in an election that could include as few as 30 percent of registered voters.

Polls show McAuliffe leading and campaign finance reports show him vastly outspending Cuccinelli on campaign advertising. That has left Cuccinelli leaning on his deeply conservative base's fears.

McAuliffe, meanwhile, is campaigning with Sen. Tim Kaine at stops throughout Virginia.
