Democrats across Virginia focuses their campaign efforts on women today.
Around 20 volunteers for the Tim Kaine campaign gathered in Roanoke this morning to canvass neighborhoods.
Local democratic leaders including councilwoman Anita Price and councilman Sherman Lea were on hand this morning to speak. The purpose of the speeches was to educate the volunteers about the difference between Kaine and his challenger George Allen regarding women's rights.
The Kaine campaign held five similar events around the state today. 'Women's issues' have become a focal point of the Virginia senate race.
