RALEIGH, NC (AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama is planning another visit to North Carolina.
A White House official said Wednesday that the trip is scheduled for April 24 to the Research Triangle area.
The official said more details will be released as they become available.
Last September, Obama visited a small business in Apex and spoke at North Carolina State University to drum up support for his jobs proposal. One month later, he returned to the state for a bus tour that stopped in Asheville, Wilkes County and the Triad.
Next week's scheduled visit will be Obama's fourth to the state since last June. North Carolina is considered a key state in Obama's bid for re-election in November.
