Democrat Senator Roscoe Reynolds, Republican Senator Bill Stanley and Independent Jeff Evans have all let you know their opinion.
Today Virginia's top republicans including Governor Bob McDonnell held a last minute campaign stop for Stanley.
He says the answer to putting people back to work rely on small businesses.
"Create incentives for small businesses to occur and grow and expand and get that money off the sidelines and investment and put that money back here in Southside and Southwest Virginia," said Bill Stanley.
Incumbent Senator Reynolds has been blamed for the high unemployment rate in the district.
Reynolds says he's working with other law makers to attract businesses in the area. He says they can't control when a business decides to leave the area.
