George Allen Makes Local Stops for ‘Americans For Prosperity'
Roanoke Co. and Lynchburg, VA - Former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator, George Allen toured the area Thursday in support of "Americans For Prosperity."
In Roanoke County, Allen addressed a crowd of about 100 people. Allen's main message revolved around health care as he denounced last year's health care bill and suggested optional ways to solve those issues.
The buzz circulating around DC media outlets is that Allen is planning to challenge Senator Jim Webb for his old seat in 2012.
Allen wouldn't confirm or deny the rumors.
"I'm with the Americans for Prosperity... doing this tour. The town hall tours and meetings across Virginia and that's what our focus is. So far as what I may do in the future... politically... stay tuned," he said.
Allen also stopped in Lynchburg Thursday on the tour. He spoke to a packed room at the Kirkley Hotel. Allen says his focus is to educate people on the issues facing Virginia's families, including Obamacare.
The Americans for Prosperity tour has been traveling around the state for the last two days. Lynchburg was their last stop.
