"Yeah, I’m a little busy doing budget negotiations right now," Ryan said according to Politico. "My problem is my day job pretty much keeps me full-time busy, so I apologize."

In the last few days of the Virginia governor's race Democrat Terry McAuliffe has a number of high-profile Democrats campaigning for him including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and Vice President Biden.

Cuccinelli, who has been shown to be trailing behind McAuliffe in recent polling, will campaign with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
