As the electoral map begins to take shape it is becoming more and more clear that the GOP ticket must have Virginia to have any hope of capturing 270 electoral votes.
To that end, the Romney/Ryan campaign in coordination with the Republican Party of Virginia has set off on an unprecedented effort to get voters to the polls on election day. A key part of that effort includes numerous opportunities to see both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in Virginia over next several days.
The big one for Richmond area voters will be Romney's visit to the University of Richmond on Sunday. Romney will hold a Rally at the Robin's Center that will take place at around 4pm. It is part of a three stop swing for the GOP nominee that will start in Northern Virginia and end in Virginia Beach.
