Michelle Obama to visit North Carolina

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Campaign officials say Michelle Obama will visit two North Carolina cities this week to support the Democratic presidential ticket.

State campaign spokesman Paul Cox said Michelle Obama will campaign Thursday in Charlotte and Greensboro. The appearances will be her first visit to North Carolina since May to campaign for her husband, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Michelle Obama will attend an economic round-table for working women in Charlotte at McGlohon Theater. Doors will open at 9 a.m.

She will then travel to Greensboro for an event at the Carolina Theater, where doors will open at 1:30 p.m.

Tickets are free but required for both events and can be picked up at Obama campaign offices in Greensboro, High Point and Charlotte.
