Obama, Romney plan last-minute visits to battleground Virginia
Not that anyone needs a reminder, but with four days until the election, Virginia is still a focal point for the campaigns of President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.
Just a day after the Obama campaign announced a marquee rally in Bristow this weekend featuring President Bill Clinton and a performance from commonwealth-native Dave Matthews, the GOP camp announced Mitt Romney will spend a portion of election eve Monday in Fairfax.
Near-certain to be the final time the candidates will visit the “Mother of the Presidents” before the election, Obama’s event in Prince William County begins around 7 p.m. Saturday, while Mitt Romney’s speech in Fairfax is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
Additionally, two of Mitt Romney’s five sons – Tagg and Ben – will make a Loudoun County appearance Sunday, visiting the Sterling Victory Office at 2 p.m.
The race in Virginia remains dead-locked. The lastest polling average from Real Clear Politics shows Romney ahead by half a percentage point.
Nationally, the polls show an equally tight race—though Obama has the slight edge overall, according to the Real Clear Politics average.
