CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Mitt Romney is coming to battleground North Carolina for the first time in almost two months.

The Republican presidential nominee's campaign said Monday that Romney will visit Asheville on Thursday. Campaign spokesman Robert Reid says he couldn't immediately provide more details.

The former Massachusetts governor last visited North Carolina in mid-August for a Charlotte fundraiser. He'll be visiting the state on the same night as the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

Romney's campaign and his allies have invested heavily in North Carolina in an attempt to counter President Barack Obama's extensive campaign network in the state. Obama narrowly won North Carolina's electoral votes in 2008.

North Carolina's GOP says volunteers made more than 200,000 voter contacts this past Saturday.
