Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie rallied supporters at the Wood Grill Buffet in Harrisonburg Friday, just four days before Virginia's election.

The crowd was full of energy as Gillespie was introduced by Sen. Mark Obenshain, encouraging people to get out and vote on November 7.

"I feel good," said Gillespie. "I feel like we have a ton of momentum. My energy level has never been higher. I feel like we're going to win the race and meetings like we're having right now is just fantastic and I could just feel the momentum everywhere I go."

Gillespie brought togehter other state Republican candidates, including Republican Delegates Tony Wilt and Steve Landes. Enthusiastic supporters like Laura Logie also filled the room. Logie has made 6,500 calls on behalf of Ed Gillespie She now has a specially made shirt, just for her.

Logie says she started the Radford College Republican Club in 1965 and has been to every Republican convention since 1981. Issues like Gillespie's pro-life stances, the Second Amendment and the economy draw her to the campaign

"Virginia has been, was, in the top ten [economies]," said Logie. "Now it's gone way down and the taxes are too high and the middle class is really hurting and the Democrats spend, spend, spend and we gotta get our economy back."

In his push throughout the Shenandoah Valley, Gillespie says he wants to make sure communities are staying safe as well.

"We've seen MS-13 gang activity in the Shenandoah Valley, I've got policies to ban sanctuary cities and to crack down on gang violence including MS-13," said Gillespie.

Election Day is November 7.
