VIRGINIA BEACH--The Military Aviation Museum in Pungo is the backdrop for Saturday's rally for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Secret Service was at the site Friday preparing for the visit.

The rally, dubbed a Va. Beach Victory Rally by his campaign, will be held in a hangar at the museum.

People in the area say they're worried about traffic because it's just a two-lane road leading to the event.

It will be the second time in nearly a month that Romney has campaigned in Hampton Roads. He was at Nauticus in downtown Norfolk on August 11 to announce Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.  

Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and the program is set to begin at 1:25 p.m. and you can get a free ticket online or by calling (757) 279-8253.

From Virginia Beach, Romney will go to Richmond for the Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway.
