First lady slated to visit two NC cities next week


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama is returning to North Carolina next week for campaign events in Greenville and Durham.

President Barack Obama's re-election campaign in North Carolina announced Friday that his wife will participate in "grass-roots events" in the two cities Wednesday. The campaign said other details would be released later.

The first lady spent lots of time in North Carolina last week while the Democratic National Convention was in Charlotte. She gave several speeches to convention delegates at caucus meetings and on the convention floor on the first night.
