It's day two of Senator Barack Obama's tour across Virginia. The presumptive presidential candidate has a packed day. It includes appearances with rumored VP hopeful Tim Kaine.

Obama will spend today in Virginia with Governor Tim Kaine, who is rumored to be on his short list. Other possible running mates include Senator Joe Biden, Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana.

Before this big day of campaigning with Obama, Governor Kaine talked about his trust that the campaign will make the right choice, whomever they choose.

Obama and Kaine will start this morning with a private fundraiser in Chester, then this afternoon in Chesapeake, they'll host two town hall meetings.

The meetings are open to the public, but tickets for those two events are already sold out.

Obama's camp says they'll first announce his VP pick by text message to his supporters either today or tomorrow.

On Saturday, the running mates will appear together for the first time during a town hall meeting in Illinois, Senator Obama's home state.
