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.

@ Oranges
well, rasmussen was wrong


And Rasmussen has a slight edge for Romney!


If you are an undecided voter, I highly recommend you read this report by the nonpartisan and highly regarded Congressional Research Service. It analyzes one central issue of the Presidential campaign: the effects of additional income tax cuts on future economic growth in the US:
