President Obama concluded his two days of campaigning throughout the battleground state of Virginia Saturday. He talked about his "Vision for Virginia's Middle Class" in all five campaign stops, highlighting the differences between his economic and jobs plan and those of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Saturday, he made campaign stops at the Walkerton Tavern in Glen Allen, Va. and ended his two-day tour of Virginia with a rally at Centreville High School in Centreville, Va.
On Friday, the President spoke at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach, Phoebus High School in Hampton and Historic Fire Station No. 1 in Roanoke, Va.
Earlier this week, the President called on Congress to "prevent a scheduled tax increase on 98 percent on Americans, including families across Virginia" and approve his Middle-Class tax cut plan.
Romney campaign surrogates former Navy Secretary John Lehman, Congressman Randy Forbes, and former Senator Jim Talent held a conference call with reporters on Thursday to "welcome President Obama before he arrives in Virginia on Friday."
In May, the President officially kicked off his re-election campaign with a rally at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. In 2008, then-Senator Obama became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Virginia in 44 years.
Saturday, the Obama campaign released a new television ad, "Firms", that highlights "Mitt Romney’s record of shipping jobs overseas and owning offshore accounts in foreign tax havens."
