The Obama administration is making a late show of force to help Terry McAuliffe in the closing days of his bid for Virginia governor.
President Obama will campaign for McAuliffe (D) Sunday in Northern Virginia, two days before voters go to the polls. The appearance will cap an escalating series of events designed to boost turnout for McAuliffe, who is running against state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R).
Vice President Biden will take his turn Monday morning, appearing with McAuliffe at 9 a.m. in Annandale to motivate volunteers before a day of canvassing. (The exact locations of Obama and Biden’s events have not yet been released.)
And first lady Michelle Obama is rounding out the effort with a new radio ad urging Virginians to vote next Tuesday.
