First Lady Says Virginia is a Key State for November

  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama emphasized Virginia's importance in the presidential election in an appearance before several hundred supporters in Richmond.
 
     Obama said Thursday that the election could come down to a few battleground states such as Virginia. She said President Barack Obama's 235,000-vote margin of victory in Virginia four years ago works out to only a couple of votes per neighborhood, which is why it's important to get people to the polls in November.
 
     She also touted the president's record on job creation, health care reform, women's issues and other matters. 
 
     The crowd greeted Obama with a chant of "four more years" and later erupted in cheers when she asked, "Are you fired up?"
 
     In 2008, Barack Obama became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry Virginia since 1964.
