It looks like Virginia will remain a battleground to the bitter end of this presidential election.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney will campaign Thursday in Roanoke, Caroline County and Virginia Beach. President Barack Obama will hold a rally in Bristow, in Prince William County, on Saturday, his campaign announced this afternoon.
First Lady Michelle Obama will be in the state for the president on Friday. Romney’s campaign announced today that GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will headline a rally at Richmond International Airport, at the same hangar where he appeared on the day after the Republican National Convention.
Vice President Joe Biden will campaign in Virginia on Monday, but Obama’s campaign has not said exactly where Biden will appear. State Democrats traditionally have held an election eve fly-around that includes a stop in Roanoke.
