Virginia's Final Factor: Swing voters in Northern Virginia worry about defense cuts

The Final Factors – Our series on the critical issues in the swing states - issues that will decide this election. And there's no place more critical for both candidates than Loudoun County Virginia, about 30 miles outside Washington DC.

Both candidates and their wives have campaigned in Loudoun. And President Barack Obama even noted just how crucial the county is to his re-election bid.

"We won last time in Loudoun County, and if we win again, we win Virginia. And if we win Virginia, we win the election," says Pres. Obama says in Leesburg, Virginia.
The latest polling from Virginia shows it's a tight race: Obama's ahead by just two points, within the poll's margin of error.

And there's one big issue to the voters in Loudoun - aside from Lyme disease: $600 billion in automatic spending cuts to the defense budget that are scheduled for the beginning of the year unless Congress finds a way to cut the federal budget by $1.2 trillion.

CNN Contributor John Avlon has the story.
