Gubernatorial Candidate McAuliffe to Visit Leesburg
Campaign stop with local businesses and the mayor set for Tuesday afternoon.
Democratic candidate for Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, the McLean-based businessman perhaps best known for his work for former President Bill Clinton, will be in Leesburg Tuesday to meet with Mayor Kristen Umstattd and town business owners.
McAuliffe is on a small-business tour as his campaign swings into full gear. The Democrat faces Republican Ken Cuccinelli, who is also from Northern Virginia, and Independent Tareq D. Salahi, who made headlines crashing a White House party with his ex-wife, who is now married to Journey guitarist Neal Schon. Bill Bolling dropped his bid for the Republican nomination, but could jump back in an Independent candidate. Bolling has raised more money ($2.75 million), according to the Virginia Public Access Project, than Cuccinelli ($2 million). Both Bolling and Cuccinelli trail McAuliffe ($8.9 million), while Sahali has raised less than $100,000.
McAuliffe’s stop begins at 1:15 p.m. at the Leesburg Town Hall.
