CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- With just over a week until Election Day, a "Team Trump" campaign bus stopped in Central Virginia Sunday.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Virginia House Del. Nick Freitas, who is challenging Rep. Abigail Spanberger in the highly-watched 7th Congressional District race, were on board.

The pair, along with the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia and the Virginia Delegates Chairman, addressed supporters during a stop at Keystone Acres, an equestrian facility along River Road.

Additionally, supporters of the president set off Saturday on a "Trump Train" parade through Richmond featuring pickups and cars decked with flags and other signs of support for the president.

The event was organized by Mike Dickenson, who is running for city council in Richmond's 1st District.

The last day to vote early, in-person in Virginia is Saturday, Oct. 31. Absentee ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, which is Tuesday, Nov. 3. The polls are open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Virginia.
