First Lady Visits North Carolina

First Lady Michelle Obama
First Lady's Office
/

The Obamas are spending a lot of time in North Carolina as the Democratic National Convention draws near. 

Leoneda Inge:  First Lady Michelle Obama was in the state for several events yesterday, mixed with Democratic fundraisers. Yesterday, Mrs. Obama met with active military personnel and their families in Raleigh.  The First Lady ended the day in Charlotte meeting with school children to promote her “Let’s Move” fitness campaign.  She also helped celebrate the 100th anniversary of the CIAA, the oldest African American athletic conference in the country.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Charlotte on Wednesday to deliver a speech on the economy.  Mr. Obama barely won North Carolina in the 2008 presidential election.
