Virginia remains at the forefront of the presidential race, and President Obama scheduled to return this week to campaign.

Obama is planning to travel to Charlottesville on Wednesday. It will be the last stop in a two-day tour of college towns in battleground states, according to the Associated Press. The President will visit Ames, Iowa, home to Iowa State University and Fort Collins, Colo., home of Colorado State on Tuesday before heading to Charlottesville and the University of Virginia.

Recent polls have shown the Obama holding a slim lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, but have shown Romney narrowing the margin.

Both campaigns continue to spend time and money reaching out to the Commonwealth's voters.
