Monday, Susan Allen traveled to Southside Virginia for her final stops ending the “Send a Message” tour at Common Grounds in South Boston.
She, along with State Senator Frank Ruff, urged supporters to help share George Allen’s conservative message and vision for America’s Comeback with their family and friends, encouraging them to get-out-the-vote on Tuesday.
“Tomorrow is Day-One for sending responsible, conservative principles back to the U.S. Senate,” Ruff said as he introduced Allen to the crowd gathered at Common Grounds. “A solid win for George Allen in the Republican Primary is a clear sign for small business owners and Virginia families that we are positioned to take back our country. For too long, we have had to endure burdensome regulations of the Obama-Kaine administration. Tomorrow, by standing behind George Allen, we will tell them ‘no more’.”
Allen and Ruff ended their day of campaigning in Halifax County, with a small business tour followed by the meet and greet at Common Grounds Coffee Shop where approximately 100 supporters had gathered.
She began her last campaign day stopping in Prince Edward County to attend a get out the vote event at the Prince Edward County Courthouse.
She emphasized the importance of Tuesday’s Republican Primary and sending a message to President Obama, Tim Kaine and their allies in Washington.
“Tomorrow is a chance for Virginians to stand up against the failed policies coming out of Washington,” said Allen. “By standing united behind George, we will let President Obama and Tim Kaine know that we are serious about bringing responsible governance and conservative principles back to the U.S. Senate. The people of Virginia are ready to elect a leader who will stand up for Virginia’s families and small businesses and George is that leader.”
The second stop of the day was a Charlotte County get out the vote event at the Charlotte County Courthouse.
