Virginia's Republican presidential primary is tomorrow and the candidates are working to spread their message across the state.
George W. Bush made campaign appearances in the state last week and John McCain is expected to rally in Virginia Beach today.
While Bush and McCain have captured most of the media's attention, supporters of Alan Keyes say Virginians should NOT forget there is another candidate vying for their support.
Joy Sutton has more.
