With two weeks left before the legislative races in Virginia, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will rally the troops in Fairfax County Wednesday.
Dozens of national and state media have already gathered outside the tiny Fairfax County Republican Committee headquarters, where signs for Virginia GOP candidates blanket the office.
Romney will be joined by Gov. Bob McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling to greet volunteers before addressing the media.
If the GOP picks up just two seats, the party would seize control because Bolling presides over the Senate.
Virginia’s top Republicans — McDonnell, Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II and former U.S. senator and governor George Allen, now a candidate for U.S. Senate — have been crisscrossing the state for candidates.
Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, has been in Virginia several times this year for closed fundraisers, including one at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner and an event in Virginia Beach hosted by Sen. Jeff McWaters (R-Virginia Beach).
