One night after a speech by President Barack Obama in Charlottesville, state Sen. Robert Hurt is back in town.

Volunteers at the 5th District Republican candidate's campaign office made phone calls throughout the day, asking potential voters for support. The state senator was not in Charlottesville for Obama's appearance, as he was campaigning in the southern part of the district.

Hurt said though he welcomes the president to the area, Obama's appearance shows U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello's allegiance to the president's policies.

"It shows that the president is grateful to Tom Perriello for voting with him as opposed to voting for the people who he represents," Hurt said.

Hurt will have a rally of his own on Friday beginning at 5 p.m. at his Albemarle Square campaign office. Speakers include Gov. Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
