CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia Republican officials are sponsoring what they call "Super Saturday" events in three locations.

The Republican Party of Virginia is sponsoring the events in Norfolk, Charlottesville and Fairfax to launch what they bill as the largest GOP get-out-the-vote operation in Virginia. The Republican National Committee and Mitt Romney's presidential campaign are also part of the Saturday blitz.

Republicans say they'll part of a national effort to make hundreds of thousands of voter contacts by knocking on doors and making phone calls.

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling will kick off the Charlottesville opening, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and U.S. Senate candidate George Allen will be in Fairfax, while the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, Pat Mullins, will do the honors at the Norfolk office.
