Obama is hoping to sway voters in New Jersey and Virginia, the only two gubernatorial races this year.

A poll out this afternoon from Monmouth University shows Republican Ed Gillespie just edging out Democrat Ralph Northam in the race for Virginia governor, 48 to 47 percent.

Remember when state issues and personalities drove Virginia's gubernatorial campaigns? His Republican challenges John Adams' $2.7 million is more than any other A.G. hopeful, though, including Herring's 2013 total through September of $2.2 million and Republican Mark Herring's $2 million.

Virginians are no strangers to countrywide political visibility, as last year the state's status as a swing state during the presidential primary and general election, as well as the selection of Sen.

Obama will first drop in on campaign workers in Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday for a private "canvass kickoff" for Democratic candidate Phil Murphy.

Phillip Thompson, the president of the Loudoun County NAACP, said that the Fairfax's exclusion from the campaign flier reinforces a perception that the Virginia Democratic Party sees him as an outsider. In the same poll, 36 percent said they had a positive opinion of Trump and 52 percent had a negative opinion.

Gillespie touts support for the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which he says would create construction jobs in the region. Hillary Clinton won it in 2016. So, while holding Trump at arm's length, Gillespie adopted the Trump anti-immigration playbook.

Gillespie also touts a plan to "grow Virginia's $21.9 billion outdoor industry - whose epicenter is in the Southwest Virginia region".

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to headline a Republican fundraiser in Denver next week, but local interest is so low, tickets to the event have already been marked down.

Virginia has leaned blue in recent statewide elections, thanks in large part to population growth in Northern Virginia.

However, Republicans have a majority in the state legislature.

Economic issues were identified as the most important by 18 percent of the respondents while health care was named the most important issue by 16 percent of likely voters.

And Holder has also campaigned with Northam.
