First Lady Michelle Obama Travels To NC

First lady Michelle Obama is set to visit North Carolina to drum up swing-state support for her husband's re-election bid.

Obama is scheduled to speak in Greensboro and appear in Raleigh for a fundraiser. The Obama campaign announced she will enlist support of the It Takes One program she launched last week. The program is aimed at encouraging grassroots participation.

The post-Summer Olympics appearance is Obama's first trip to the state since May, when she spoke at commencement exercises at North Carolina A&T State University. This trip takes her to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Both the Romney and Obama presidential campaigns have made trips to North Carolina, specifically to its third largest city. In July, Ann Romney was in Greensboro stumping for her husband.
