On Saturday afternoon in northern Virginia, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was standing beside Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
Saturday evening in Lynchburg, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was stumping for Republican Ken Cuccinelli.
But 12 hours later, the Sunday papers were serving up surprises.
The Richmond Times Dispatch declined to endorse anyone: Cuccinelli, McAuliffe or Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis.
The Charlottesville Daily Progress encouraged its readers to cast a write-in vote for Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling.
While the papers broke from tradition, Roanoke College Professor and WDBJ7 Senior Political Analyst Harry Wilson says their decisions were consistent with recent polling.
"What you're seeing pretty clearly is that people all over the state, and obviously even editorial boards, are not happy with the two major candidates. I thought it was also interesting that neither one of them decided to endorse Sarvis, even though both of them had relatively kind words to say about Sarvis."
Cuccinelli and McAuliffe will meet on Thursday in the final debate of the campaign, co-sponsored by WDBJ7 and Virginia Tech.
Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to campaign for McAuliffe during a three-day swing next week.
