GLEN ALLEN, Va. — Republican Ken Cuccinelli tried to energize his conservative base Saturday with just days before voters choose between him and Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe to become the next governor of Virginia.
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 time ticking down toward 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.
“Just because people agree with us doesn’t mean they’re going to vote,” Cuccinelli told volunteers at a campaign office near Richmond. “This is what nagging is for.”
