Kaine to Launch Get Out The Vote Efforts in Central Virginia, Hampton Roads, and the Eastern Shore

Senator Kaine will kick off his campaign’s Get-out-the-Vote efforts with a weekend swing through Central Virginia, Hampton Roads, and the Eastern Shore, culminating in a GOTV rally with 2nd District Congressional Candidate Elaine Luria and Congressman Bobby Scott in Accomack. At all of these events, Kaine will emphasize the stakes of the election, encourage supporters to engage in on-the-ground efforts to contact and mobilize voters ahead of the November 6 midterm elections, and share his message of building a Virginia that works for all.

On Saturday, October 20, Kaine will begin the day by launching a canvass with the Liberal Women of Chesterfield County before traveling to Petersburg to tailgate during homecoming celebrations at Virginia State University, an HBCU. In the afternoon, Kaine will join military spouse Lakesha Cole, a Portsmouth native, entrepreneur and Kaine’s guest at this year’s State of the Union address, to celebrate the opening of her new business, the She Swank Marketplace in Portsmouth. Kaine’s bill to tackle military spouse unemployment became law in August with bipartisan support. Later, he will host a Filipino community meet-and-greet in Virginia Beach and a GOTV meet-and-greet in Norfolk.

Kaine will begin Sunday with church services at the Faith Deliverance Christian Center and the Queen Street Baptist Church in Norfolk, where he will deliver remarks and meet with churchgoers and community members. He will then host a GOTV rally with 2nd Congressional District Democratic nominee Elaine Luria and Congressman Bobby Scott. Kaine continues to campaign with downballot Democrats in order to build a strong, united, and winning Democratic ticket. Kaine will end the swing by launching an evening canvass in Newport News.

Media interested in covering or speaking with Senator Kaine at these events should RSVP to Brandon Gassaway at brandon@timkaine.com.
