The reports that Mitt Romneys first two rallies in Virginia on thursday were strikingly smaller than similar events just two weeks ago with large empty spaces and crowds totaling no more than 2,500 a stark contrast to the droves that attended rallies in places like Chesapeake and Leesburg following Romney's successful performance in the presidential debates. The final rally, at an amphitheater in Virginia Beach on Thursday evening, was significantly larger than the earlier events.

President Obamas campaign last week thursday Oct 25th in Richmond, VA had a crowd of 15,000.

Romneys campaign in Doswell, VA only 25 miles from Richmond, VA had no more than 2,500 people, even though he campaigned there with Gov Bob McDonnell, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, US Senate Candidate George Allen,  VA Attorney General Ken Kucinnelli.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
