President to visit Asheville on Wednesday

President Barack Obama is expected to visit Asheville on Wednesday, the day after delivering his State of the Union address, the White House announced Sunday.

Obama is expected to "discuss proposals, unveiled in the speech, that focus on strengthening the economy for the middle class and those striving to get there," according to a news release.

On Thursday, Obama will travel to Atlanta, Ga., then to Chicago on Friday.

The White House is expected to release more information about the travels later this week.

The president visited Boone in October 2011 en route to Wilkes County as part of his American Jobs Act bus tour, stopping at Mast General Store and meeting with passersby in downtown Boone.
