We are just under two months from Election Day, and Republican Rep. Robert Hurt is hitting the campaign trail hard.
He made a series of stops in Charlottesville on Friday, including at the University of Virginia and Martha Jefferson Hospital. Hurt says he feels confident about the Republican Party's chances, but also says the outcome will fall on the ground game and independent voters.
"What we see as we travel across the district is a level of enthusiasm that is the same, if not a little bit better than what we saw two years ago when we had a tremendously hard fought race here in Virginia's 5th District," said Hurt.
He also said he watched President Barack Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention, but doesn't believe the president explained why he deserves re-election.
