I may be incredibly biased on the subject, but I completely agree with Mitt Romney.
"Now politics is underway, it's underway again. You're going to hear it all right here in Virginia. This may well be the state who decides who the next president is." Romney said to an audience in Portsmouth, VA.
In 2008, President Obama won Virginia with 53% of the vote.
Issues discussed by Romney in Virginia-
- Importance of an energy plan that would utilize Virginia's resources including those found above and below the ground
- Military and veterans. (VA has largest veteran population in the U.S.)
Speaking of which, how are the polls in Virginia?
According to a Washington Post poll released today, 51% are Team Obama, and 44% are Team Romney. Interestingly, 66% of Virginians also think the country is on the wrong track. Go figure.
Outside of the great Commonwealth, other people in other states discussed the Romney VP potentials. The more he travels around the country, the more the media speculates the he is auditioning VP possibles.
