GOP team visits Valley

Gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell and his colleagues just finished their Valley stop in the "Just say Yes" tour of the state Monday.
McDonnell, Lt. Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General nominee Ken Cuccinelli met a enthusiastic crowd of around 100 people at Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport at Weyers Cave.
"The enthusiasm is on the side of the Republican party, thanks to you," McDonnell said in greeting the crowd. "We're ready to lead if you're ready to win."
McDonnell touted his team's combined 19 victories in elections through their careers. From energy to education and taxes, he noted areas where the Democrats will continue saying no while Republicans will say Yes.
"We are going to be the ticket to have big bold ideas for reform," McDonnell said.
Bolling echoed the themes of McDonnell's short speech.
"We have a record of working together to get things done in Richmond," Bolling said. "We have the kind of experienced, principled leadership that the people of Virginia are looking for."
Cuccinelli joined the ticket at the weekend's Republican state convention, winning a close election.
"We may be outspent, but we won't be outworked."
