The presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney will travel to Virginia on Saturday. His visit is the start of a 4 day, 4 state bus tour through the hottest battlegrounds of the 2012 presidential election.
Romney has campaigned in Virginia, but not nearly as much as his opponent and the man he is trying to unseat President Barack Obama.
The specific locations Romney will visit on his trip to the Commonwealth have not been announced. He has yet to visit the Richmond Metro since securing the nomination.
Last week, CNN's Peter Hamby (a Richmond native) speculated that this trip could coincide with a roll out of Romney's pick for Vice President, which might be good news for Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, because the trip starts here.
McDonnell's office confirmed that he will be with Romney on his tour of Virginia.
At this point, the purpose of the trip is all speculative. The campaign has released few specific details as to what will actually happen.
We will keep you up to date when we learn more.
