Former President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail next Thursday to stump for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ralph Northam at a rally in Richmond.
Details on the location of the get-out-the-vote rally were not yet available. Northam tweeted “Fired up, ready to go!” and provided a link through his campaign website where supporters can R.S.V.P. for a ticket at RalphNortham.com/Obama. The campaign said space will be limited.
Northam used the Obama news to fire up a crowd gathered Wednesday at Richmond’s Secco Wine Bar for a women for Northam happy-hour event.
“President Barack Obama said that ‘I want to tell you how important Virginia is to me. It means the world to me. It means our legacy, for me and Michelle. I’m going to do everything that I can to come to Virginia to campaign for you,’ ” Northam said.
