Debate brings rallies to Blacksburg

Posted: Updated:

Before the candidates stepped up for the final debate, at least two groups held protests in Blacksburg.

The Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC held a rally at the Squires Student Center, where the debate was set to take place. They held bright pink signs and changed, hoping to share their concerns about Ken Cuccinelli with women in the community.

"We want to make sure women in Virginia are informed on Ken Cuccinelli's record on women's health and rights and how important it is to vote in this election," says executive director of the Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC, Cianti Stewart-Reid.

Meanwhile, across town another group of women were holding a rally-- this one in honor of Cuccinelli. Montgomery County Republican Women held a rally in support of the candidate at Custom Catering before the debate.
