Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is in Albemarle County Wednesday night on the gubernatorial campaign trail, and traveling with a Tea Party favorite.
With about three weeks left until Election Day, Cuccinelli stopped by his Charlottesville-area campaign office in Albemarle, joined by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. Haley says it is crucial for her to support Cuccinelli because what happens in Virginia impacts South Carolina.
Both Haley and Cuccinelli stressed the importance of campaigning in the last weeks before the election and met with a number of students and other people who live in the area.
Latest polls show Cuccinelli is behind his opponent Terry McAuliffe and is also behind in fundraising - but Cuccinelli says he's not worried.
"I was behind in '09 too and I won by 16 points so that doesn't worry me," he said. "We have a better ground game because we have more people committed to the principles that we have built this campaign on than the other side does this year."
Cuccinelli says he is still within the margin of error in the polls.
