Politics and Pumpkins: Anne Holton Campaigns at Cox Farms
Touts husband Tim Kaine in U.S. Senate race.
Tim Kaine will break through political gridlock and improve educational opportunities for Virginians if elected to the U.S. Senate, his wife Anne Holton, told potential voters Wednesday in a campaign appearance at Cox Farms in Centreville.
Holton stopped at the farm's fall festival Wednesday morning to talk to potential voters before the Nov. 6 election. Polls show a tight race between Kaine, a Democratic former governor and Republican George Allen, also a former governor who is attempting to reclaim his Senate seat.
An NBC News/WSJ/Marist Poll released Wednesday shows Kaine has the support of 49 percent of likely voters in Virginia, including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate and those who voted by absentee ballot. This compares with 44 percent for Republican George Allen. Seven percent are undecided.
“With a race as close as Tim’s, it’s incredibly important that each and every one of you gets involved and gets out to vote in November,” said Holton, according to a news release. “Outside groups have spent more than $13 million in false, negative ads against Tim, but your grassroots support and conversations with your friends and neighbors about Tim will make the difference on Election Day.”
