President Barack Obama will campaign for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe this weekend, giving a late boost to McAuliffe as he seeks to energize core Democratic voters in an off-year governors race, Democratic sources told POLITICO.
Obama is set to appear at a Sunday afternoon get-out-the-vote rally in Northern Virginia. It will be the presidents first campaign appearance for McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
McAuliffes campaign has been working to activate many of the same voters who carried Virginia for Obama in 2008 and 2012: young people, independent women and African American, Latino and Asian American voters. Some of those groups particularly young and nonwhite voters tend to participate at lower rates in non-presidential elections.
The Democrat currently has held a consistent polling lead over his Republican opponent, state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. A Washington Post survey published Monday found McAuliffe 12 points ahead of the GOP nominee.
Both candidates have turned their attention in recent days to firing up the party faithful ahead of the Nov. 5 vote.
