RALEIGH, N.C. - Officials say President Barack Obama is speaking at North Carolina State University when he visits the state next week.
That's according to a report Saturday by WTVD-TV (http://bit.ly/1gtSZyi ).
On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the president would travel to North Carolina for "an event on the economy." Carney says Obama is scheduled to visit the Research Triangle area on Jan. 15.
Obama made two visits to the state in 2013. Last June, he discussed plans to change the nation's classrooms into digital learning centers during a visit to the Charlotte area.
Last February, Obama followed his State of the Union address with a stop in the Asheville area to tour a local auto parts plant which he used as an example of the nation's economic resurgence.
