President Barack Obama is expected to make stops in the Greater Richmond area this weekend as part of his scheduled two-day campaign swing through the commonwealth.
Obama is expected to fly into Richmond International Airport on Saturday in Eastern Henrico County and is expected to make a stop in South Richmond, according to a source familair with the schedule who spoke on condition of anonymity. Additional details of the visit could not be determined.
The president is also expected to make stops in Roanoke and the Tidewater region as part of campaign tour of Virginia, one of a dozen swing states upon which the 2012 election is expected to pivot.
Since the presidential trip was announced Friday, campaign officials have refused to confirm or deny any details of Obama’s schedule, saying more information would be released later in the week.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney campaigned in the state two weeks ago, making stops in Salem, near Roanoke, and Sterling.
