ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) - The race for governor in Virginia is a tight race between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin.

On Thursday, Youngkin was among those who came out to Virginia Senator Mark Obenshain’s annual “Oysters with Obenshain” fundraiser at Rockingham County Fairgrounds. GOP attorney general candidate Jason Miyares attended and both candidates spoke to the crowd. Congressmen Ben Cline and Virginia Delegate Todd Gilbert were in attendance, as well.

“There are over 300 people here who are revved up and ready to elect Glenn Youngkin as the next governor of Virginia and Todd Gilbert as the next speaker of the House of Delegates so people are pumped up and really ready for this election,” said Obenshain.

During Youngkin’s speech, he brought up several topics including the economy, education, and police reform. Election Day in Virginia is November 2nd.
