RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama will make a campaign stop in Richmond next weekend.
Campaign officials tell media outlets that the president and first lady Michelle Obama will attend a rally on May 5 at Virginia Commonwealth University's Siegel Center. His first appearance that day will be at Ohio State University in Columbus.
Obama's campaign has been opening offices across Virginia in recent months.
The president won Virginia by 6 percentage points in 2008, making him the first Democrat to win the state in a presidential election since 1964.
