Former Maryland governor drums up support for Clinton in Hampton Roads

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Once her democratic rival in the primaries, former Governor Martin O'Malley swung through Hampton Roads Thursday in attempting to boost support for Hillary Clinton.

O'Malley stopped by the democratic field office on Boush Street in Norfolk to meet the volunteers phone banking and canvassing for the democratic nominee.

"Virginia has a critically important role to play," O'Malley told supporters. "Tim Kaine is on the ballot and Virginians are getting on board. Go out and pump it up, one thing we don't suffer from is complacency. Let's go out and win this thing!"

The governor also made stops in Virginia Beach and Hampton.

TV personality and attorney Star Jones also campaigned for Clinton Thursday.

Most polls show Clinton leading republican nominee Donald Trump in the commonwealth. But a recent Hampton University poll put the billionaire ahead of Clinton by a few points.

"We've got all the momentum behind us and as things are deteriorating for the Clinton campaign every day, it's fueling the energy of our supporters," said John Fredericks, the Virginia Chairman of Trump's campaign. "They can't stop it, they can't buy enough people, they can't buy enough ads, we're going to win Virginia."
