Former Virginia Democratic Gov. Douglas Wilder says his state has become a key focus of the presidential race because voters are beginning to ask as the November election approaches if they are better off now than they were four years ago.
 
“Independents, particularly, here in Virginia, are saying: ‘Wait a minute, I am not feeling as good as I did four years ago,’” Wilder said during an interview Tuesday with Fox News' Neil Cavuto.
 
But Wilder told Cavuto voters are asking that question of both parties, not just President Barack Obama, because many blame both for the nation’s economic downturn and growing debt.
 
Wilder said it’s important for Obama and Romney to lay out for voters exactly what they plan to do about it.
 
“Do not say we are going to do it,” he advised them, adding that voters are ready to hear specific details about how it's going to get done and when.
 
“That is the challenge that the Democrats have; that is the challenge that the Republicans have,” Wilder said. “But for the officeholders to say re-elect us, they have got to show what those last four years have wrought, what they have brought, and what they might bring if there is a re-election [of Obama].”
