Obama to Campaign for McAuliffe in Arlington

President Obama addresses students and parents at Washington-Lee High School

President Obama will come to Washington-Lee High School on Sunday to campaign for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

The rally will start early Sunday afternoon. Tickets to the event are being distributed to the public on a first-come, first-served basis starting today (Wednesday) at noon at the following locations:

  • Democratic Party of Virginia Arlington Office (2050 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 200)
  • Democratic Party of Virginia Alexandria Office (618 N Washington Street)
  • Democratic Party of Virginia Springfield Office (6354 Springfield Plaza)
  • Democratic Party of Virginia Fairfax City Office (11202 Lee Hwy)

This is not the first time President Obama has held an event at Washington-Lee. Last May, the president spoke to a more than a thousand Washington-Lee students in the school’s gymnasium while pushing Congress to act on extending federally-subsidized student loans.

McAuliffe, a Democrat, is facing Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Libertarian Robert Sarvis in the race for the governor’s mansion. Election day is this coming Tuesday, Nov. 5.
