Campaigning in Virginia

Greetings from Virginia!
I'm currently typing this from Virginia where I am assisting Tim Kaine to win a US senate seat.
It is a very tight race here in Virginia and I am gladly pounding the streets to knock on doors and deliver literature to help Tim Kaine and his large amount of volunteers.
His campaign office in Virginia is literally buzzing - everybody is totally focussed on the end goal in a few days. I have worked on American elections in the past, but it never ceases to amaze me in terms of the enthusiasm that all volunteers show on these campaigns. His office is a buzz of noise and excitement, while people queue through the door to lend a hand on the phones or to knock on supporters doors to book them in for a lift to the polling station next week.
Tim Kaine was at a rally of over 20,000 people last night, a story which was covered internationally by the Daily Mail.

Whilst here in the States I have been also attending important meetings and utilising the techniques we are observing here to further our own cause back in the UK to push for an In Out referendum on the UK's continued membership of the European Union.
