Romney Campaign Focusing on Military Spending in Virginia

Spreading fear about job loses that would result from Obama's defense cuts


Mitt Romney is banking on winning the battleground state of Virginia by blasting President Obama on looming defense cuts and the job losses they would create.

Romney has relentlessly criticized Obama on the so-called sequester in nearly every speech he has delivered in the commonwealth. His campaign has run two ads hitting the president on the law, which was put in place with bipartisan support.

The GOP nominee's attacks on Obama on the hot-button issue are targeted at Virginia's many veterans and defense contractors.
