Virginia represents 13 electoral votes in the race to reach 270.
CBS reports that Romney is dominating among whites (64-35 percent) in Virginia, while Obama leads among women (53-46 percent). The same report says Obama leads among black voters (94-6 percent). Meanwhile, Virginia voters notably split by age, CBS reports:
