“When I was governor, we had a simple rule. There were no Republican ideas or Democratic ideas, only good ideas,” Mr. McAuliffe said. “And I’m proud we worked together creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, a record investment in education. We moved Virginia forward.”
Mr. Youngkin, wearing a red vest over a white dress shirt, told voters that the election was going to indicate a new direction for the state, attacking career politicians.
“For too long we’ve been told by the same career politicians that more government is the answer. But this election is not about them, it’s about us,” Mr. Youngkin said. “Together we can build a better future that works for us. This is our moment. On November 2nd, a new day begins in Virginia.”
Mr. Youngkin touched on creating more opportunities in education, supporting law enforcement, and lowering taxes.
Both candidates are meeting voters and stopping across Virginia this weekend.
Mr. McAuliffe is joined by Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, U.S. Reps. Bobby Scott and Barbara Lee on his tour of Portsmouth, Hampton, Fredericksburg, and Newport News.
The race is neck-and-neck for both candidates, with just three days left until Election Day.
The poll, conducted Oct. 22-23, surveyed 875 very likely Virginia voters, and had an error margin of +/-3.2%.
Early voting is underway in Virginia.
