McCain Planning Saturday Event in Northern Virginia

There is an enormous amount of support up here in NoVA for the McCain-Palin ticket.  The response has been extremely encouraging, absolutely phenomenal.  Witness the 23,000 person rally in Fairfax.  Bring McCain and Palin back up here to NoVA, and I’ll bet you get another 23,000 folks.

Moments ago, Virginia Team McCain e-mails me, “Join Senator John McCain at a Victory rally Saturday, October 18th at the Sean Connaughton Plaza at the Prince William County Complex. Tickets are available online or by visiting one of the designated Virginia Victory offices between 9:00am and 9:00 p.m. EDT.”

That’s nice, but, uh, is Sarah coming?
