McAuliffe Cuccinelli Campaign
RICHMOND, Va. -

The major party candidates for governor will be paying a visit Thursday to a college government class taught by a former Virginia governor, Doug Wilder.
    
Republican Ken Cuccinelli says he will make a major policy announcement at his 4 p.m. appearance before Wilder's class at Virginia Commonwealth University.
    
And then, Wilder says Democrat Terry McAuliffe will address his students starting at 5 p.m.
    
Courtship of Wilder, the nation's first elected African-American governor, has become a ritual in statewide elections. Wilder has yet to make an endorsement in this year's Virginia gubernatorial race.
