Tim Kaine to make stops across Virginia in final week-long campaign swing


tim kaineIn the final week before Election Day, Senator Tim Kaine will barnstorm Virginia with stops across the Commonwealth as he campaigns with 5th, 6th, and 9th District congressional candidates Leslie Cockburn, Jennifer Lewis, and Anthony Flaccavento and share his message of building a Virginia that works for all. At all of these events, Kaine will emphasize the stakes of the election, the importance of turning out to vote, and engaging in the grassroots efforts to mobilize voters ahead of November 6.

On Monday, October 29, Kaine will begin the swing with a Get-out-the-Vote meet-and-greet at Mary Baldwin University in Staunton. Later, he will join Jennifer Lewis for GOTV meet-and-greets in Lexington and on the campus of Hollins University in Hollins. Monday will culminate in a GOTV rally with Lewis at the Soaring Ridge Brewery in Roanoke.

On Tuesday morning, Kaine will highlight the work of grassroots volunteers at a volunteer appreciation coffee in Roanoke before joining community members and supporters at a GOTV lunch in Martinsville. In the afternoon, Kaine and Anthony Flaccavento will engage college students in Radford for a GOTV meet-and-greet and at a Virginia Tech Young Dems text bank and pizza party.

On Wednesday, Kaine and Jennifer Lewis will join Lynchburg University students for breakfast before traveling to Nellysford to host a Nelson County lunchtime meet-and-greet. He will then stop in Front Royal for coffee and a retail walk of local businesses. In the evening, Kaine will join Mark Herring for Leesburg’s annual Halloween parade.

Kaine will begin Thursday in Fairfax Station with a GOTV event, before hosting a Louisa County meet-and-greet and another GOTV event in Crozet. He will end Thursday in Charlottesville at events with Leslie Cockburn – they will host a text bank and pizza party with the University of Virginia Democrats and later fire up supporters together at a GOTV rally. Finally, Kaine will conclude the week with a visit to the Shirley Gate Islamic Center with Congressman Gerry Connolly in Fairfax before enjoying Friday night football in Henrico and Chesterfield counties.
