Obama to visit Prince George County
President Barack Obama returns to Central Virginia next Friday to deliver remarks on the state of the U.S. economy. The visit will be a White House trip and will come just three days after the Virginia GOP primary.
The specific time and location of the event have not been released.
Central Virginia has become a frequent stop for the president. Since taking office, Mr. Obama has held an intimate conversation with a small group of people at a community center in Strafford Hills, campaign style rallies at the University of Richmond and Greensville County High School and addressed first responders at a fire station in Chesterfield.
Virginia, a state Obama narrowly won in 2008, is expected to be one of the most competitive states in the 2012 elections. In addition to his visits to the greater Richmond area, the president has made multiple visits to Hampton Roads and has made numerous stops to locations in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.
He also made a campaign stop in Charlottesville in 2010 for then Rep. Tom Perriello‘s unsuccessful re-election campaign.
NBC12 will have complete coverage of the presidents visit. Check back next week for specifics about the time and location of the event.
