(AP) — President Barack Obama is telling Virginians to choose progress by voting for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Tuesday’s election for governor.

Obama spoke at a rally for McAuliffe in Arlington, just outside the nation’s capital, in the final days of a bitter campaign for governor.

Obama painted Republican Ken Cuccinelli as beholden to an extreme tea party ideology that, according to the president, shut down the government and hurt Virginians.

Obama said McAuliffe knows how to push though obstacles and cares deeply about equality. The president urged McAuliffe’s backers not to get complacent at the end of the race.

Cuccinelli is telling his supporters that Obama’s visit highlights McAuliffe’s support for Obama’s unpopular health care law.
