VA Hosting Both Presidential Candidates Thursday

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia is set to play host to both presidential candidates on Thursday.
    
President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at Farm Bureau Live on Thursday morning in Virginia Beach.
    
And media outlets report that Republican Mitt Romney is set to hold an event for veterans at American Legion Post 176 in Springfield on Thursday.
    
The visits by both presidential candidates follow a Tuesday campaign event in Chesterfield County by Vice President Joe Biden.
    
Both campaigns have frequented Virginia, which is considered a battleground state.
    
Recent polls place Obama slightly ahead of Romney. Obama won Virginia in 2008, becoming the first Democrat since Lyndon B. Johnson to gain victory here.
