Biden is campaigning with Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Washington suburbs a day before Election Day.

Biden says McAuliffe's opponent, Republican Ken Cuccinelli, is the loudest voice in America against women's access to health care. He's painting Cuccinelli as part of a tea party faction that's turning back progress.

Biden says if Cuccinelli wins, Virginia will have to give companies stipends to locate in the state because corporations will be so turned off by Cuccinelli's policies.

He's praising McAuliffe as smart, tough and rooted in middle-class values.

Cuccinelli is campaigning Monday with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
