Democratic Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe visited several businesses in downtown Fredericksburg earlier today.

Among the restaurants he stopped by were Kybecca and Capital Ale House, a McAuliffe spokesman said. 

“I was listening to business owners about their mainstream ideas for improving the economy,” McAuliffe said in a statement.  ”With federal funding cuts coming, we need to diversify Virginia’s economy and small businesses like the ones in Fredericksburg are a great model for that.”

McAuliffe is running against Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
