Local Push For Super Tuesday

February 4, 2008

With Super Tuesday coming up presidential candidates will be campaigning up until the last minute, but even here in Virginia there's a local push for Super Tuesday.

Over the next few days more than 20 states will either have a caucus or primary including Virginia and many candidates are still out campaigning at the last minute trying to get support.

Over the past few days our newsroom has been flooded with emails from Obama, McCain, and even Ron Paul’s campaign. They all know time is running out and in just a few hours tens of millions of people will be voting.

Now it seems that several candidates are really pushing to win the state of Virginia. In an email from Barack Obama’s campaign it says "what we do here in Virginia can change America." John McCain’s campaign even sent out an e-mail stating that a former Virginia attorney general is now endorsing McCain. They’re hoping this endorsement will help him win Virginia.

Super Tuesday is very important because delegates are selected to national conventions at which each party's presidential candidates are officially nominated.

Presidential candidates aren't the only ones doing a little last minute campaigning. U.S. Senate candidate Mark Warner will be in Charlottesville tomorrow.

Virginia’s presidential primary for both the republican and democratic candidates will be held Tuesday, February 12th.
