Some Democrats won't join Obama in Va., but Republican Gov. McDonnell will appear with him
By The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ' Don't look for Democrats in fiercely contested legislative elections to join President Barack Obama as he brings his American Jobs Act bus tour to three Virginia cities.

For that matter, don't expect to see Tim Kaine, the former Democratic National Committee chairman and past Virginia governor, joining his old ally either.

But one statewide elected official will join Obama ' Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, a GOP vice presidential prospect and a sharp, frequent critic of the Obama White House.

McDonnell announced he would appear with the president at a Wednesday stop in Hampton at a military base for an event advocating expanded employment opportunities for veterans.

Republicans say Democrats were so afraid to embrace the unpopular president that Obama changed his Virginia itinerary to avoid stops near targeted Democrats.
