The Final Push (Updated)

Tim Craig

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who is attending a rally in Norfolk this evening, will return to Hampton Roads Thursday night for an event at the Virginia Beach Amphitheatre.

The trip, which also follows a stop today in Harrisonburg, will be Obama's tenth visit to Virginia since June.

On Saturday, GOP presidential nominee John McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, plan to hold multiple campaign events in Virginia, according to GOP officials. One of those stops will be in Virginia Beach.

The candidate visits are just a small part of the final push in Virginia to the Nov. 4 election. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) will campaign for Obama on Thursday and Friday. He plans to stop in Arlington, Falls Church, Charlottesville and Richmond. Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, will campaign in Portsmouth, Hampton, Clifton and Richmond for Obama Saturday. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) is also expected to stump for Obama and other Democrats in Virginia in the coming days, according to a statement from her office.

Meanwhile, McCain's mother, Roberta, will kick off a three-day tour of Virginia on Wednesday that will take her to every corner of the state. Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) and several prominent veterans will campaign for McCain in Virginia Beach, Richmond and Arlington on Thursday.
