Romney’s campaign also has 24 offices, including nine that Gov. Bob McDonnell’s political action committee maintained after his election in 2009.
Both campaigns overlap in key areas: Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, Richmond and Southside as well as Fredericksburg and Charlottesville. And both plan to open more offices.
Recent polls show Obama with a slight lead in Virginia, although most surveys rely on data that predate Romney’s clinching of the GOP nomination. A Washington Post poll in May had Obama ahead of Romney, 51 percent to 44 percent, among registered state voters.
