President Obama starts Virginia tour | July 13 schedules

By ,

President Obama kicks off a tour of Virginia on Friday with events in Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Roanoke, which Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Senate candidate Tim Kaine (D-Va.) will also attend.

The Romney campaign will have surrogates across the state to counter the president’s trip. Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) and Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-Va.) will hold a press conference in Williamsburg, Va. ahead of the National Governors Association meeting there to “welcome” Obama to the state, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani will attend a Romney campaign office opening in the Richmond area.
