According to a new poll, Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli has shrunk to 2 points in the Virginia gubernatorial race (42% to 40%, with Libertarian Robert Sarvis at 13%). At the beginning of the month, McAuliffe was up five points (43% to 38%), suggesting Cuccinelli is gaining momentum going into the last weekend of the election. The survey was conducted October 25 to October 30, with 874 likely voters at a 3.24% margin of error.
I got a chance to speak to Travis Korson, Virginia Field Director for the Faith and Freedom Coalition (FFC) here in Arlington, Virginia. It was a privilege to speak to him and hear what the organization was accomplishing for this election. In driving here to this location, I noticed a diverse group of young people throughout the neighborhoods walking door to door informing citizens that there is an election on Tuesday and their vote is very important.
One thing that I totally admired was that the phone operators were not telling the callers who to vote for which I was surprised with. They were non-stop in making sure that voters new both sides of the argument if asked and were very cordial.
In speaking with Travis, I found that he was very informed and access ready to let me know what FFC was doing and how they were doing it. I told Travis that I wanted to do a three minute interview but his answers were so great I decided to go just a bit further. Please share this interview so that you also understand what Faith and Freedom does and how important they are.
