Romney to give foreign policy speech at VMI

LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will give a speech on foreign policy at Virginia Military Institute on Monday.

Romney's campaign made the announcement Thursday, the same day he and running mate Paul Ryan appeared at Augusta Expoland in Fishersville.

The visits are the latest in a string of what has become weekly campaign stops by both sides in Virginia, a battleground state, in the campaign's stretch run.

Romney, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden campaigned in the state last week. Obama, who in 2008 became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry Virginia since 1964, is set to return to northern Virginia on Friday.
