Obama team considering Richmond stop
We don’t know anything official yet.. but there are rumblings among democrats and those connected to the Obama campaign that among the stops being considered in the president’s Virginia swing is another stop in the Richmond metro area.
The AP reported over the weekend that Richmond was being considered and we were able to confirm that it is in the running with a source familiar with the campaign. Campaign officials remain consistent in their contention that the official itinerary has not been set and we should learn more as soon as tomorrow.
Several sources have reported that the Obama campaign is also considering stops in the Virginia Beach and Roanoke areas.
The president has yet to make it to the Roanoke area since being elected. He has made several stops to Virginia Beach. Outside of short jaunts into Northern Virginia, Richmond has been one of his primary destinations. He launched his re-election campaign here back in May and has made five official White House visits in the Richmond media market as president.
As with any campaign event, everything is subject to change, up until the President is standing on the stage.
We’ll keep you posted.
