Kaine, Allen To Separately Address Agriculture Group In Lynchburg

RICHMOND, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — Senate candidates George Allen and Tim Kaine appear Friday afternoon before a meeting of the Virginia Farm Bureau, answering questions from the group separately.

Allen is a Republican trying to win back the seat he lost to Democratic Sen. Jim Webb in 2006. Kaine is a former governor who was the Democratic National Committee chairman for two years. They won’t share the stage.

The Lynchburg event is not a debate like last weekend’s sometimes personal clash between the two before the Virginia Bar Association.

Each candidate will have time alone before the agribusiness group answering its questions.

Allen released a statement Thursday saying he would like Congress to reverse President Obama’s plan to exclude Virginia from consideration of offshore oil and gas leases.
