Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney campaigned on Thursday at a rally in Fairfax, Virginia.

Earlier this week, Businessweek pointed out that a recent Romney campaign ad buy in Virginia, which declares the state is “not better off under President Obama,” undercuts the message of Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, who had gone on a statewide “Growing Strong” tour in May.

“While difficult economic times are not completely behind us, and Virginia will continue to face challenges on the road to recovery, the Commonwealth is showing significant signs that it is growing strong again,” Businessweek reported that McDonnell said at the time.

Romney’s Virginia campaign appearance also comes one day after he gave a widely panned press conference on Libya and Egypt.
