Former Virginia Gov. George Allen tells Newsmax.TV that people he meets on the campaign trail remain “upset and discouraged” about high gas prices and the economy — and he expects that sentiment to propel voters to the right on Election Day.

“The extra $25 or $30 they are paying every time they fill up is really hurting families and it’s also hurting a lot of businesses," Allen said in the exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.

Story continues below the video.




Allen, who is running for U.S. Senate in Virginia, touted a plan he called the “Blueprint for America’s Comeback.” He described the initiative as a “pro-growth plan of action that would simplify and lower taxes.”

When pushed to talk about specific elements of his plan, Allen explained: “On day one, I’m introducing a bill to produce natural gas and oil off our coast and use that money for roads and transportation.”

The policies of the Obama administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, including cap-and-trade legislation, have amounted to “a war on coal, and jobs, and affordable electricity,” he said.

Allen also is using a recently released ad to link his opponent, former Gov. Tim Kaine, to President Barack Obama and the $800 billion stimulus package that failed to create or save as many jobs as promised. The commercial chides Kaine for once saying, “I’m doing what the president wants me to do.”

Virginians want a senator who “represents their values, not someone who will be a rubber stamp for the Obama policies, as he [Kaine] has been for the last three years,” Allen said.
