Battleground Virginia

Politico: "The verdict is in: Barack Obama's 2008 victory in Virginia was not a fluke. For the once reliably Republican state, competitive presidential elections are the new normal."

"Just look at the candidates' schedules... Both campaigns are also moving swiftly to build their organizations. Romney recently brought his Iowa state director, Sara Craig, to helm Virginia and his team hopes to open at least a dozen field offices in the next month. Obama has had a Richmond-based staff in place for months and just opened up his 13th field office last month. The action on the ground is mirrored on the air -- Obama's campaign and Romney's super PAC are already broadcasting commercials in the state."
