McAuliffe, Kaine and Herring Rally C'ville Volunteers

November 2, 2013

Volunteers packed the Charlottesville campaign office for Democratic candidate for governor Terry McAuliffe during a grassroots event.

“That person to person contact, that's what's going to make the difference in this race,” says Del. Charniele Herring, chair of Democratic Party of Virginia.

Many came out rallying together for one final push for the Democratic vote on Election Day.

“The issues are so great in this election, the difference between the two of us,” says McAuliffe. “We just want to make sure people understand the real issues in front of us today.”

McAuliffe spoke to a packed room about the importance of going door-to-door and telling people about the campaign.

“A lot of money is being spent on television and radio ads,” says McAuliffe. “It is really that face to face contact, neighbor to neighbor, friend to friend to say this election really does matter.”

There tends to be fewer people at the polls during non-presidential elections, but both McAuliffe and attorney general candidate Mark Herring are trying to change that.

“Virginians are really looking for more moderate, mainstream leadership,” says Herring. “I've got a strong record of working in a responsible, pragmatic way and a problem solving approach, they are tired of an extreme social agenda.”

“Mark Herring is going to come back and restore to the office its proper role, which is good legal advice and not fighting the social and ideological crusade,” says Sen. Tim Kaine, who also attended the event.

“I believe the law and putting Virginians first is the essence of job of attorney general and that's what I'll do,” explains Herring.

Saturday’s event allowed candidates to rally volunteers and urge them to help get their message across that every vote counts.
