Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Tim Kaine introduced President Barack Obama Thursday in Richmond by emphasizing the importance of Virginians’ votes in the upcoming election.

“Even a little bit more than four years ago, presidential candidates, they didn’t come to Virginia,” Kaine said to the estimated crowd of 15,000. “Republican candidates … didn’t need to come to Virginia and Democratic candidates said, ‘Why bother coming to Virginia?’ President Obama changed that in 2008 and he’s changed it so that now that everybody that’s running for president of any party has got to come because Virginians are important.”

Virginia was one of the stops on the President’s 48-hour blitz trip across six swing states with a stop in Chicago to cast his advance ballot. On Wednesday, Obama visited Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Today, the president came to Virginia from Florida and still had stops in Ohio in Illinois before the two-day tour was over.

The state will also host appearances from Gov. Mitt Romney and both candidates’ runningmates in the next few days.
