WASHINGTON (CNN) - For the second time this year, Sen. John McCain is coming to Virginia to campaign for Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bob McDonnell.
McDonnell's campaign also said Monday that ESPN college football analyst Lou Holtz, the former Notre Dame and South Carolina head coach, will campaign for the Republican in Richmond on October 26. McDonnell is a graduate of Notre Dame.
McCain, the Arizona senator and Navy hero, is holding a rally for veterans on October 17 in Hampton Roads, a region of the state with a heavy military population. McDonnell was a frequent campaign surrogate for McCain when the senator was GOP presidential nominee in 2008.
McCain also raised money for McDonnell in March.
