Obama Coming to Richmond
Just announced: Sen. Barack Obama will make his 8th visit of the campaign season to Virginia and this time it will be right in Richmond.
The Democratic nominee for President will appear at a rally at the Richmond Coliseum on Wednesday.
Obama has not appeared in the city of Richmond since winning the nomination. (He spoke at VCU at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner last spring and in Chester right before the DNC).
I wonder how the candidates for Mayor of Richmond will clamour for time with the nominee when he is in town.
Full details of the visit are after the jump.

Barack Obama to Hold Change We Need Rally in Richmond Wednesday
RICHMOND, Va. – U.S. Sen. Barack Obama will hold a Change We Need rally Wednesday at the Richmond Coliseum. It’s Obama’s eighth trip to the commonwealth since the end of the primary campaign.
In Richmond, he will lay out his plans to jump start the economy, provide affordable health care to Virginians and bring a responsible end to the Iraq war and contrast his vision for America with John McCain’s plans for four more years of the same failed policies of the last eight.
This event is free and open to the public, though, an RSVP is strongly encouraged. To RSVP, please visit http://www.VA.barackobama.com.
