Virginia will remain a battleground state to the bitter end of this long election campaign, it seems.
Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan may get the last word from either of the two presidential tickets in Virginia when he makes a quick stop at Richmond International Airport on Tuesday afternoon.
Ryan is scheduled to appear at the Continental Express hangar at 2:55 p.m. — about four hours before the polls in Virginia close — according to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
Romney held rallies in Lynchburg and Fairfax on Monday. Vice President Joe Biden held rallies in Sterling and Richmond, with an “unscheduled” detour to Roanoke.
Barring a last-minute, unscheduled stop by one of the presidential campaigns, Ryan’s appearance will be the last in an election unlike any Virginia has seen.
Remember, folks, the polls open at 6 a.m.
