Kaine speaks at a Biden campaign rally in Sterling, Virginia

Former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine raises his arms to supporters before introducing U.S. Vice President Joe Biden to speak during a campaign rally in Sterling, Virginia November 5, 2012. After a long, bitter and expensive campaign, national polls show Obama and Romney are essentially deadlocked ahead of Tuesday’s election, although Obama has a slight advantage in the eight or nine battleground states that will decide the winner.
