RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Former President Barack Obama will campaign with Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe this Saturday at Virginia Commonwealth University.

McAuliffe and Obama want Virginians to mobilize and make a plan to vote early ahead of the Nov. 2 election. Early voting is open until Oct. 30.

The grassroots event with Obama will take place at The Compass from 1 to 3 p.m.

Tickets are required due to limited space. RSVP is required for attendance but does not guarantee a ticket.

His opponent, Glenn Youngkin, will launch a statewide bus tour on the same day, with stops in the greater Richmond area.
