CULPEPER, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Virginia Democratic and Republican candidates were holding events Tuesday to drum up support in what many experts are calling extremely tight races. There is just one week left before election day.

Yesli Vega, the Republican candidate for the Seventh Congressional District of Virginia, held an early vote rally with Governor Glenn Youngkin on Tuesday night in Culpeper.

As the country gets closer to election day, stops like this are very important for candidates of both parties, especially this year.

Current predictions show Republicans taking control of the U.S. House with 228 seats compared to 207 Democrat seats, and Vega is excited about it.

"I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of what I see happening in Washington, D.C.," said Vega.

But if younger voters turn out, a CBS poll shows a closer race, giving Democrats a one-seat advantage over Republicans.

Youngkin was there Tuesday night urging attendees to get others to vote for Vega. This was one of many campaign stops Youngkin has made, hopping from state to state to stump for Republicans across the country.

"And if we don't lock our arms together and elect Yesli Vega and Republicans all across this nation, then we are going to see the spirit of America come under fire," he said.

Youngkin spent the rest of his speech touting the plans Vega has, if she is elected to Congress, and encouraging those who were there to campaign on her behalf in the final week leading up to the election.

When asked if Youngkin could make a statement regarding his comments on the attack on Paul Pelosi earlier this week, Youngkin's press secretary said he did not have the time at this event.
