Surrogates Flock to Virginia (Updated)
With just two weeks left before the Nov. 4 election, a slew of big-name politicians are flocking to battleground Virginia to stand in for Sens. John McCain (R) and Barack Obama (D).
Both parties are ramping up efforts to win the state's 13 electoral votes but with more money and staff the Democrats are usually holding more events, sometimes several each day.
Just take a look at the schedule for the next couple days:
The Democrats will hold events with Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius in Arlington tomorrow; Ethel Kennedy, widow of the late senator and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, in Southwest tomorrow and Wednesday; former Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus in various locations, mostly in central Virginia, tomorrow and Wednesday and retired U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark in Roanoke and Harrisonburg Wednesday.
The Republicans will hold events with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) in Harrisonburg and Lynchburg tomorrow and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Attorney General Jerry Kilgore and Del. Terry Kilgore in Southwest tomorrow.
