Wisconsin Gov. Walker stumps for Mitt in northern Virginia

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker--a draw among Republicans for surviving his recall election despite being targeted by Democrats--hits the battleground state of Virginia for Mitt Romney on Saturday.

Walker hits Leesburg--where Obama stumped on Thursday night-- for an event at a campaign office with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.).

After that, Walker appears at the "Romney for President Virginia Headquarters Grand Opening" in Arlington along with Republican National Political Director Rick Wiley.

Volunteers Fill Victory Offices For Super Saturday Push Across Virginia

WASHINGTON - This Saturday, Republicans in Virginia and around the country will kick off the second monthly "Super Saturday" weekend ahead of November. Statewide and nationally, volunteers will make literally hundreds of thousands of voter contacts by phone and in person. July was the earliest the GOP has tested its ground game operation.

With a rising unemployment rate and a record 42 months of 8 percent plus unemployment in the news today, President Obama's continued failure to keep his promises and help the middle class, we expect hundreds of volunteers on the phones and knocking on doors to promote Governor Romney's focus on job creation and economic growth. Please join us for our "Super Saturday" marquee events in Leesburg and Arlington as well as other kick off events across the commonwealth.
