JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is traveling to Virginia to support fellow Republican Ed Gillespie’s campaign for governor.

Greitens’ spokesman Parker Briden on Wednesday confirmed the first-time elected official’s attendance as the featured speaker at the early Thursday event.

Greitens is also listed among other Republican governors as a guest at a fundraiser next week for Nebraska Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts, who is up for re-election. And Greitens is named as the special guest at a fundraiser for Iowa Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds later this month.

This story has been corrected to show that Gillespie is a candidate for Virginia governor, not the incumbent.
