FROM: Obama for America
CHICAGO — Obama for America announced today that President Obama and Vice President Biden will hold campaign events across the country next week as part of their “Road to Charlotte” tours leading up to the Democratic National Convention. On the tours, the President and Vice President will be joined by different “American Heroes” – people who have shown grit and determination in overcoming obstacles, highlight the progress we’ve made together in rebuilding our economy, and demonstrate the American values of hard work and responsibility that make our country great. In addition to sharing their stories with the President and Vice President in their home states, some will also share their stories at the Democratic National Convention.
On the “Road to Charlotte” tours, the President and Vice President will continue to lay out what’s at stake for the middle class in this election – the choice between continuing to move forward to an economy built to last that’s grounded in a strong middle class, or going back to the same top-down economic policies of the last decade that crashed our economy and punished the middle class. The “American Heroes” that will join the President and Vice President exemplify the importance of this choice and they understand why our economy needs to be built from the middle out, not the top down.
On Saturday, September 1, the President will kick off his “Road to Charlotte” tour in Des Moines, Iowa before traveling across the state to Sioux City.
On Sunday, September 2, the President will then campaign in Boulder, Colorado. On the following day, Monday, September 3, the President will travel to Toledo and Cleveland, Ohio for campaign events. And on Tuesday, September 4, the President will campaign in Norfolk, Virginia.
On Sunday, September 2, Vice President Biden will campaign in the York, Pennsylvania region in addition to Green Bay, Wisconsin. From there, the Vice President will travel to Detroit, Michigan on Monday, September 3.
Additional details on President Obama and Vice President Biden’s campaign events are forthcoming.
