Virginia has 13 electoral votes and is one of nine states CNN considers a "toss up" in November's election.
A CNN Poll of Polls, which averages four Virginia polls of likely voters conducted over the last two and a half weeks, shows Obama with an advantage over Romney, 49%-45%.
Meanwhile, Obama will hold rallies in Denver, Colorado and Madison, Wisconsin Thursday. Vice President Joe Biden will campaign in Iowa.
