Ann Romney to Campaign in Virginia

The Washington Post is reporting that Ann Romney, wife of 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, will make a stop in Virginia Monday to campaign on behalf of Senate hopeful Ed Gillespie and 10th district congressional candidate Barbara Comstock.

Mrs. Romney will make a stop at a “get out the vote” event in Sterling, Va., the middle of the Loudoun suburbs, which contains many independent voters. Former Senator George Allen (R-Va.) will accompany her.

Both Gillespie and Comstock have ties to the Romneys that reach beyond party affiliation. Comstock worked on his presidential bid in 2008, and in 2012 she served as the Virginia campaign co-chair. Gillespie was an advisor for his 2012 campaign.

Mrs. Romney has not been as active on the campaign trail this year as her husband, but she has weighed in on a few races. Most recently, she spoke out on CNN after South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley was accidentally called a “whore”. She also tweeted “I stand wit my friend @BarbaraComstock for Congress-lawyer, businesswoman, public servant, Mom-all ‘real jobs,'”  after Comstock’s opponent John Foust questioned her job history.
