Posted: Updated:

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli says having former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with him on the campaign trail is a big boost.
    
Cuccinelli says Huckabee gets people fired up and people like him.
    
Media outlets report that Huckabee joined the attorney general at a campaign event Saturday night in Lynchburg. He and Cuccinelli told the crowd that America should look to coal and fossil fuels for energy.
    
Huckabee also said Cuccinelli was the first of 27 attorneys general to challenge the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
    
Huckabee and Cuccinelli attended Liberty University's homecoming football game before the rally.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Terry McAuliffe's campaign says former President Bill Clinton will join the Democratic gubernatorial candidate on a three-day campaign tour around the state.

McAuliffe's campaign said Sunday that locations and details of the events will be announced later.

McAuliffe was a top fundraiser for both Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. McAuliffe later served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Hillary Rodham Clinton endorsed McAuliffe on Saturday at an event in Falls Church.
