CLIFTON FORGE, Va. (WDBJ7) Governor McAuliffe spent one of his last days in office on the road.

He stopped by Clifton Forge this afternoon, getting a tour of the renovated Historic Masonic Theater.

The Governor was also briefed on efforts to grow drone business in Alleghany County.

"I'm heartened to see it," the Governor said of the drone work. "I'm glad Lancaster Community College is now offering courses in this. This is what it means to build the new Virginia economy, to be a leader in 21st Century jobs: cyber, data,unmanned systems."

The visit to Alleghany notched the final step in his promise to visit every county in the Commonwealth while governor.
