Interest high at UNC campus for Obama loan talk

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The line for tickets and the interest in hearing President Barack Obama speak about student debt is high at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A line of students seeking tickets to hear Obama in Chapel Hill camped out overnight despite Sunday's rain in front of the box office of the university's former basketball auditorium where he'll speak.

Obama visits the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Tuesday and similar colleges in Colorado and Iowa as he woos young voters by taking about student loans and the rising cost of education. All three are in states Obama won in 2008 but are expected to be closely contested with likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
