With just over a week to go until the last day of voting in Virginia and New Jersey, former President Barack Obama joined each state's Democratic nominee for governor on the campaign trail Saturday, hoping to motivate the party's base to turn out in their state's off-year general elections.

"I want you to get fired up inside and then go vote. ... We ain't got time to be tired!" Obama said at a rally for Virginia's Democratic ticket in Richmond.
