Confident Team McDonnell at Roanoke Regional Airport Election Eve – video

Web DSC04722A crowd of about the same size as the Deeds Team that gathered earlier in the morning of election eve greeted the Republican ticket of Bob Mcdonnell for governor, Lt. Governor for reelection Bill Bolling and Sen. Ken Cuccinelli for attorney general. Cuccinelli was anxiously waiting to present to the crowd his broom handle baring “McBOLLINCELLI” on it. Cuccinelli calls Election Day “knock and drag day … knock on the doors and drag’em to the polls.”

Bolling told McDonnell that he would cut the first ribbon to reopen the first rest stop and McDonnell “could cut the rest of the 18.” McDonnell’s daughter Jeanine, a former Lieutenant in the Army and served in Iraq spoke passionately about her father.

McDonnell took the mike the final time before an anticipated victory on November 3. He downplayed the lead telling supporters again why they should vote for him. Smaller government and “control of spending on every level” said McDonnell firmly.

Candidate Bill Cleaveland running in the 17th, Troy Bird running in the 11th, Commissioner of Revenue challenger Douglas Walker and up for reelection Sheriff Octavia Johnson. Congressman Bob Goodlatte and State Senator Ralph Smith were also on stage.

The sun beat down and off came sweaters as McDonnell and team worked the crowd preparing for their next stop.
