President Barack Obama will headline a campaign rally for Democrat Terry McAuliffe Sunday, two days before voters head to the polls in Virginia's high-profile governor's race. Vice President Joe Biden will appear with McAuliffe Monday in Annandale at a canvas kick-off.
McAuliffe, former party chairman and businessman, faces Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, R, on Tuesday.
Obama will appear at a rally in Northern Virginia, according to McAuliffe's campaign, but no other details have been announced.
Cuccinelli said in a statement that it was “telling” that McAuliffe would campaign with Obama right before Election Day.
“The move makes official what we have already known to be true: McAuliffe’s unwavering support for the President’s signature legislative achievement, Obamacare,” Cuccinelli said. “The law is already preventing hiring and job growth across Virginia, driving up the cost of insurance for families and forcing employers to drop coverage for workers,” Cuccinelli said. “If McAuliffe wanted to do right by the people of Virginia, he would ask the President to apologize for misleading the public so spectacularly.”
