The Washington Post is reporting that former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John McCain will accompany Senate candidate Ed W. Gillespie in Norfolk to meet with veterans at the VFW post.
Ed Gillespie’s star-studded campaign has also received support from Mitt Romney and has benefitted from the strategist and former lobbyists’ pull with high level members of the GOP. Gillespie served as a senior advisor to Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.
While the incumbent Mark Warner has raised a lot more than Gillespie, they have both heavily blanketed Virginia airwaves with campaign airwaves. On Tuesday, Gillespie released his first attack ad and Warner followed suit on Wednesday.
