WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is making a final-stretch push to put Democrat Terry McAuliffe into the Virginia governor's mansion. Both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are planning to campaign with McAuliffe in the coming days. Obama plans to campaign Sunday in northern Virginia, while Biden will kick off a volunteer canvassing kick-off on the election's eve Monday in Annandale. Polls show McAuliffe is ahead of Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia race, one of two gubernatorial contests being held this year. The winner will replace outgoing Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell. First lady Michelle Obama already has campaigned for McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. The event comes as Obama is embarking on a busy six-week stretch of campaigning and fundraising for Democrats.
