The counter rally was organized by the "November Is Coming" bus tour, which is a project by the Americans for Prosperity. About 50 Hurt supporters gathered to protest Friday night's Perriello rally at the Pavilion.

The bus tour was scheduled to make a trip to Pennsylvania Friday, but changed its route due to President Barack Obama's scheduled visit to Charlottesville.
