Allen Visits Valley on Final Campaign Push

Posted: Updated:

Republican Senate hopeful George Allen is on a final campaign push through our viewing area. Allen met with supporters at a luncheon in Staunton on Friday.

He was joined by Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, and state delegates Rob Bell and Dickie Bell. Allen says he'll vote to repeal Obamacare, open up Virginia's energy reserves, and take a hard look at federal regulations.
