Palin to Campaign in Virginia

Anita Kumar

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will campaign in Virginia for the first time since she became the Republican nominee for vice president this week in St. Paul, Minn.

Palin will visit Virginia Beach on Sept. 18, according to Virginia Republicans. The campaign has yet to release details of the trip.

This year, both parties predict that the heavily populated and racially diverse Hampaton Roads area, which is home to the world's largest naval base, will be one of the state's most competitive regions in the presidential race.

Hampton Roads, a region of midsize cities and sprawling suburbs in the state's southeastern corner, is home to core constituencies for both parties.

Palin's visit is part of McCain's aggressive campaign in Virginia that includes recruiting volunteers, knocking on doors and calling voters to try to win one of the nation's newest battleground states.
