Vice President Joe Biden, his wife, Jill, and son Beau will campaign on Saturday in Virginia Beach and Lynchburg, according to a campaign official.
They are two localities the Obama campaign lost in 2008 by roughly 1,400 votes each.
The vice president’s trip comes amid a four-day stretch that will bring all of the presidential election’s principal players to Virginia. President Barack Obama will rally tomorrow in Richmond while Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will visit Sunday.
Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, will campaign Thursday in Bristol and Charlottesville.
In 2008, Sen. John McCain won Virginia Beach, a traditional Republican stronghold, by 1,400 votes, down from President George W. Bush’s victory margin of 33,000 votes in 2004.
Virginia Beach was the largest Virginia locality that the Obama campaign lost in 2008. Obama campaigned there in late September.
Details of the vice president’s visits have not yet been released.
