President Barack Obama‘s re-election campaign is reaching out to college students in North Carolina.
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, Democratic strategist Valerie Jarrett, North Carolina Congressman G.K. Butterfield and actress Gabrielle Union are visiting North Carolina Central University in Durham on Tuesday.
This event launches the Obama campaign’s outreach to Historically Black College and University campuses across the country. The campaign is trying to engage college students on issues that matter to them, and organize them to work for Obama this fall.
The campaign’s campus tour kicked off last weekend in Ohio and is headed for battleground states including Nevada, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Colorado.
