CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- First Lady Michelle Obama will visit Charlotte on Monday, the campaign announced today.

Details of her trip have not been released, but she will visit the Queen City hours before election day voting booths are scheduled to open.

 

 

President Obama’s final campaign schedule, released Thursday morning, includes stops in the battlegrounds of Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Iowa, Virginia, New Hampshire and Florida — but not North Carolina.

At September’s Democratic National Convention, 65,000 people with credentials for the president’s cancelled speech at Bank of America stadium were told that they would get a chance to see him before the election.

Jill Biden, meanwhile, is scheduled to speak in Huntersville on Friday.  Jill Biden is returning after her visit last weekend was postponed because of Hurricane Sandy.

On the other side, at least three out-of-state Republican congressmen have already visited North Carolina this week on behalf of Romney.

A recent Elon Poll released Monday showed Obama and challenger Mitt Romney are in a dead heat in the state.  The poll shows each candidate with the support of 45 percent of like voters. Five percent are undecided.

The last day of early voting in North Carolina is Saturday.
