A new poll has Mitt Romney taking a five-point lead in the race for president in Virginia.
The "Gravis Marketing Survey" shows Romney leading President Obama: 49 to 45 percent.
Meanwhile, Governor Romney will headline a rally in Fairfax County on Thursday.
Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, is also planning a return to Virginia.
Our sister station in Roanoke reports Ryan will appear at a Republican fundraiser there on Friday.
