In the twilight days of Virginia's costliest election, former President Bill Clinton has twice rallied large crowds for President Barack Obama before heading to a climactic, late-night rock 'n' roll rally 35 miles from the White House with Obama.
A standing-room-only crowd of 2,500 people packed a high school gym for a dinner-hour rally Saturday in Roanoke. Clinton called Obama "a good and faithful commander-in-chief" who has done far more for the economy than Republicans will acknowledge.
At a morning rally with barely 12 hours' notice, the hoarse and weary Clinton praised Obama's handling of Superstorm Sandy, which devastated New Jersey and New York, including Clinton's home in Chappaqua, N.Y.
Polls show Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney in a close race for the 13 electoral votes Virginia gave Obama in 2008.
