Obama to Campaign in Virginia Thursday
Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the likely Democratic nominee for president, will campaign in Virginia on Thursday, according to Democratic officials.
While the schedule is still being finalized, Obama will likely visit at least two areas of the state, including Northern Virginia. It will be Obama's first campaign swing through Virginia since before the Feb. 12 primary.
Though Virginia hasn't supported a Democratic presidential nominee since 1964, the Obama campaign vows to campaign hard in the state this year in hopes of winning it's 13 electoral votes.
No word yet on whether Democratic Senate candidate Mark R. Warner or Sen. James Webb (D-Va.), both of whom are neutral in the presidential race, will decide to endorse Obama when he comes to the state.
