Talk about the heavy artillery! From Trevor Baratko over at the Loudoun Times:
Rubio, a second-term senator from Florida, will speak in Sterling in support of Republican gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie. The “get out the vote” rally will begin around 7 p.m. Monday at 42669 Trade West Drive.
Rubio held a rally at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville during last year’s the presidential primary. Local Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R), a strong Gillespie ally, was an early supporter of the Florida senator. Comstock will attend Monday’s event.
Both Virginia gubernatorial campaigns have brought out political heavy-hitters in the final month of the tight contest. Former President Barack Obama (D) campaigned with Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee, last weekend in Richmond.
For suburban Virginians and conservatives, the news couldn’t be any better.
Rubio represents a trifecta of heavy hitters coming to the Commonwealth for Republican challenger Ed Gillespie. Vice President Mike Pence made a whistlestop in southwest Virginia earlier in the month, and former President George W. Bush followed that up with twin appearances in Northern Virginia and Richmond, respectively.
