Clinton tours for Obama, Ryan for GOP ticket in Va

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Paul Ryan flew into Richmond trying to fuel what polls suggest is a Republican rally, while a hoarse and tired former President Bill Clinton became a rousing proxy for President Barack Obama in two swing-state Virginia rallies.

The busiest Saturday of presidential campaigning ever in Virginia now heads to a rock'n'roll crescendo with a Democratic rally in northern Virginia where Clinton, Senate candidate Tim Kaine and Virginia rocker Dave Matthews join Obama.

In Richmond, hundreds who gathered at a private jet service hangar at Richmond International Airport chanted "three more days" as Ryan accused Obama of "appealing to our lowest fears."

Clinton called Obama "a good and faithful commander in chief" who has made great progress in repairing deep economic damage done by his Republican predecessors.

More presidential events are scheduled Sunday.
