Vienna, Va. -- Campaigning for the Virginia governor's seat continues, this time at the Arab American Institute, which is hosting Virginia gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds at its candidates night.

Deeds will speak Sunday night as will former Rep. Tom Davis, who's attending on Bob McDonnell's behalf.

The institute says it's hosting the event so Arab Americans can speak with candidates and hear from Deeds and others about issues important to their community.

Several other candidates at the state level will also come to the event Sunday night at the Tyson's Corner Marriott.

Organizers expect hundreds of Republicans and Democrats to listen to Deeds and other candidates speak.
