Battleground VA: Romney, Ryan coming to Expoland
With the Old Dominion one of the battleground states in the race for the White House, Republican challenger Mitt Romney has slated a Central Virginia campaign appearance with ticket-mate Paul Ryan– and a little entertainment from country music star Trace Adkins. The event happens at 6pm on the fourth of October at Augusta Expoland in Fishersville.
"We're expecting close to four digits," says campaign intern Benjamin Silver, who says doors for the Thursday event will open at 4pm.
Silver says tickets, which are free, should be reserved in advance via the RSVP button at mittromney.com/states/virginia and that, if space remains available, citizens who simply show up may also be accommodated.
Romney may need more events like this to rally support, as a mid-September poll by the Washington Post found that likely voters in the Commonwealth favor Barack Obama 52 to 44 percent.
Like the recent Charlottesville appearance of the president, this Romney event came up quickly, being that a Hook reporter found out about it via an airplane-pulled banner.Read more on: Mitt Romney
