Obama Will End Campaign in Northern Virginia

Tim Craig

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama announced tonight his final event of the campaign will take place Monday evening in Northern Virginia.

Obama plans to hold a large rally in or near Manassas Park, although an exact location has yet to be determined.

Obama's decision to end his 20-month campaign in Virginia is yet another sign that he views Virginia, which last voted for a Democratic presidential nominee in 1964, as a crucial battleground. Obama has made 10 stops in Virginia since June, when he kicked off his general election campaign with stops in Bristol and at Nissan Pavilion near Manassas.

Considering Obama has drawn crowds that exceed 100,000, Monday night's rally could be a massive affair, although its unclear if the campaign can find a large venue in that part of Prince William County.

I agree with the comment before mine. NISSAN PAVILLION!!!!. It seems to be the only venue that is capable of holding that many people(plus) and still be near Manassas Park. I am EXTREMELY excited when I found out that he was ending it right here in my home area. This is absolutely an awesome and historic event and I wouldn't miss it for anything. I am so proud and honored to be able to vote and vote for Barack Obama. He is the man and I only can pray that this will be such a landslide that there is no way possible for the republicans to try and STEAL votes like THEY did in 2000. Barack Obama is the MAN, it is his season to shine!!!
