Virginia's first Republican governor since Reconstruction plans to endorse and campaign for Democratic president candidate Barack Obama.
Former Governor Linwood Holton is the father-in-law of Democratic Governor Timothy Kaine, the first governor outside of Obama's home state of Illinois to endorse the senator.
Holton will campaign on Obama's behalf with first lady Anne Holton on Monday and Tuesday. They will visit Wise, Abingdon, Galax, Wytheville, Christiansburg and Roanoke.
