NORFOLK, Va. - Ed Gillespie, republican candidate for Governor, was in Norfolk Sunday to start the first of several town hall meetings across Virginia.

Gillespie's campaign announced the launch of his “InformED Decisions” tour earlier this week before his trip to Hampton Roads.

He plans to cross much of the Commonwealth, including Hampton Roads, Southside, the Northern Neck, Central Virginia, the Roanoke Valley, the Shenandoah Valley, and Northern Virginia.

Gillespie spoke on a variety of topics and issues concerning residents in the area and across the Commonwealth.

Gillespie is running against democratic candidate for Governor, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam.

A recent poll from Suffolk University in Boston, had both candidates tied going into the last two months of the race.
