Cuccinelli, McAuliffe Pushing For Support Days Before Election

Republican Ken Cuccinelli is trying to energize his conservative base just days before voters choose between him and Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe to become the next governor of Virginia.

This weekend, Cuccinelli warned supporters that McAuliffe would be a threat to the state's coal miners, a backer of unions and beholden to out-of-state supporters.

With little time left in advance of Tuesday's election, Cuccinelli is working to inspire every last supporter in an election that could include as few as 30 percent of registered voters.

McAuliffe, meanwhile, is campaigning with Sen. Tim Kaine at stops throughout Virginia. Polls show McAuliffe leading and campaign finance reports show him vastly outspending Cuccinelli on campaign advertising.
