Skip to comments.Cuccinelli’s schedule packed, McAuliffe’s light in closing days of Va. governor’s race

Ken Cuccinelli II is planning a frenetic schedule with a handful of big-name Republican surrogates as the race for Virginia governor draws to a close. Terry McAuliffe, by contrast, is spending somewhat less time in the public eye aside from a pair of high-profile events.
The differing strategies illustrate the pecking order as the hard-fought contest nears its end. Cuccinelli (R) is consistently trailing in the polls and cant afford much of an advertising presence on the airwaves, so hes counting on word-of-mouth and media coverage from live appearances to stay afloat.
McAuliffe (D) is nursing a lead and has the cash to keep up a steady drumbeat of ads, giving him little incentive to expose himself to the press more than necessary.
Cuccinelli is planning to do multiple daily events around the state from Friday through Tuesday. His itinerary includes events Saturday in Spotsylvania and Prince William counties with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) and appearances in Warrenton and Culpeper Monday with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). And former representative Ron Paul (R-Tex.) will join Cuccinelli in Richmond on Monday evening.
McAuliffes campaign has said that he will appear at a rally with President Obama on Sunday afternoon at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, and he will join forces with Vice President Biden on Monday morning in Annandale to kick off a day of canvassing.

Democrats do not need to campaign, they have the media
Praying folks in VA...coal country...are fed up with the Dim lies and GOTV for Cuccenelli!!
“McAuliffe is in hiding from the media. “
Hiding from the voters too.
Not so much we can do from afar,
but another donation bump
FR is working
GO GO GO!
Same as between Romney and Obama. Obama drew crowds of hundreds. Romney tens of thou
I may be wrong but here in fairfax it’s like ‘what election?’ My bet is loos turnout in NVa...... Very bad for Terri
They have the media.
And preloaded voting machines.
McAwful has to hide!
The Marxist’s approval rating and obamacare are tanking!!!
BTTT! Mark Levin will be campaigning for Ken on Saturday at the Leesburg office.
Unfortunate positioning. It looks like he’s wearing a tiara.
Not to me.
Baraq & Biden heading in to campaign Sun & Mon.
With any luck they will be the death star for McAwful!
Too little too late. Where has Cuccinelli been?
man I would cry with happiness if Cuccinelli pulled off the ultimate tortoise and hare comeback here. McAuliffe is the quintessential hare napping under a tree while Cuccinelli is the tortoise plodding ahead while fighting off the pack of jaguars and eagles that is the MSM looking slaughter and eat him for lunch. I guess prayers up that we get a perfect fable ending here.
Obama can only fill a high school these days....maybe!!! Biden gets about 200 folks to turn out...he is so useless!!! Clinton will go through the motions...he has to be careful... If MacAuliife loses.......Hillary is really set back. If KC wins Obama’s POTUS is over!!!
Virginians..don’t throw away your vote on a third party candidate. You are only helping MacAuliffie to victory!!! Now.....get your butts in gear and get and vote for KC and get all your family, friends, neighbors, kindred spirits, etc. to do exactly the same. KC can win this election, if only you will turn out!!!
Virginia....the future of these United States of America is in your hands. This election of yours is a critical path item on the way to regaining the freedom, liberty and opportunity in our country!!! Your vote for KC will go a long way to making our country great, once again!!!
Just ahead of Election Day, Terry McAuliffe is playing a new game: Where’s Waldo?
“Where has Cuccinelli been?”
That was my thinking too, but this insurance thing is pretty huge. I’m on candy duty tonight (my little girl is dressed as a FedEx box!) and just saw neighbor on the left. He has (had) CareFirst too, and also got the letter. I’ve never met the wife but he says she was flipping out.
