Obama to campaign for McAuliffe Sunday

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama plans to campaign for Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe, on Sunday.
    
A spokesman for McAuliffe's campaign says Obama will join McAuliffe at a rally in northern Virginia. No additional details were available.
    
Polls show McAuliffe is ahead of Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia race, one of two gubernatorial contests being held this year. The winner will replace outgoing Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell.
    
First lady Michelle Obama already has campaigned for McAuliffe, and Democrats are hoping that a win for McAuliffe will affirm that Virginia is winnable territory for Democrats.
    
The event comes as Obama is embarking on a busy six-week stretch of campaigning and fundraising for Democrats.
    
McAuliffe is the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
