All Sides Geared up for Final Push Before Election Day

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia state candidates, political parties and special interest groups are in a frenzied push ahead of next week's election.
    
With control of the state Senate at stake, politicians and activists plan on holding rallies and doing other get-out-the-vote efforts all weekend.
    
Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is set to make an appearance at more than a dozen campaign events statewide. McAuliffe is trying to get control of the state Senate so he can have more leverage with the GOP-dominated state House.
    
Republicans control the Senate 21 to 19, and GOP officials said they'll be working the phones and knocking on doors all weekend to keep control of the upper chamber.
    
Virginia's legislative elections have drawn big investments from outside interests, including a gun control group backed by Michael Bloomberg.
