There's President Obama rallying voters in Virginia on Tuesday a state that will prove to be crucial in this year's election.
Obama being the first Democrat to win -- state since 1964 with more than half of the votes back in 2008 so what will Riley and -- have to do turnaround to win the state this time.
-- right now is the governor on the commonwealth of Virginia Bob McDonnell has had begun as they think we're much right now in your state it's a dead heat -- -- Romney and Obama.
What it what side your side you have to do.
We'll departed double -- five months ago Romney was down eight -- it's a dead heat.
