— A day after Sen. Barack Obama plans to hold a town-hall-style meeting in Greensboro, Sen. Hillary Clinton plans stops in Raleigh, Fayetteville and Winston-Salem, officials said Tuesday.

Sen. Hillary Clinton is scheduled to deliver an economic policy address at Wake Technical Community College at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, followed by a "Solutions for America" event at Terry Sanford High School in Fayetteville at 1:30 p.m., campaign officials said.

Clinton will close out the one-day swing through North Carolina with an event at Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem at 5:30 p.m., officials said.

All events are free and open to the public.

Obama made campaign stops last week in Fayetteville and Charlotte, calling for an end to the Iraq War and speaking on issues from health care to the economy.

He plans to hold a town-hall-style meeting at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Greensboro Memorial Coliseum. All tickets to that event have been distributed.

  • Watch the meeting LIVE at 1 p.m. on WRAL.com.

Former President Bill Clinton also campaigned in the state last week on behalf of his wife, making stops in Charlotte and Cary.

    Chelsey was nailed with a Q on one of her campus tours she couldn't even answer it (it was to be the last question) so she took a soft ball to let the kids forget the sucker punch she was hit with.

    Lets see if we can get the boys from Bragg to provide cover fire over Hilly when she is exiting the airplane.

    Aunt Bea (funny), when she finished telling the story of her trip to North Carolina, she will be telling people that she "corkscrewed" into Wake Tech admist sniper fire and she barely got to her speech to promise these Liberals cradle to grave coverage for everything.

    I meant to say if people were really waking up they would see how fake she is.

  • this is my Screen Name Mar 26, 2008

    Will her recollection of this trip will be another one amidst sniper fire?

    Poles say Hillary has pulled ahead of Barak. pleassssssssse it's still too early to tell. Even people were really waking up they would see how fake she is. I tell you what I pray to God Hillary doesn't make it in office. I will vote for McCain first! She is fake and why people can't see right through her I don't know. NOW---- that was very well said. I don't blame you for wanting Hillary to run against McCaine. As you stated she is a weak canidate. I am pulling for Obama but I tell you what if he doesn't win the dem nomination Mccain has my vote!

    bushretard- I would like to know where you get your "facts" from or your numbers from. How do you figure 75% of whites won't vote for Obama??? And even if that were the case you still have other people whites aren't the only ones who represent america. Stop making people from NC seem so ignorant!

    As a conservative, I must say we need Hillary as the nomination because of our weak canidate. If McCain can't beat Hillary, he does not deserve to be President. Her negatives are much higher than Osama's so we need her as the nominee so you Liberals get out there and support her if she is really coming.

    Republicans don't have open to the public appearance, while Democrats do. That speaks volumes about both parties. Hilary has reduced her campaign to following Obama's footsteps, which shows she never had any ideas on her own.

    That being said, maybe she'll lie to us about how successful the surge is working while ignoring the cease fires and paying off insurgent militias. Or how the tax cuts for the rich have "stimulated" our economy that includes a weaker dollar, higher energy prices, higher numbers of foreclosures, lower home prices, fewer home sales, and fewer new homes constructed.

    Oh wait, no, that's McCain's lies. Sorry.

    Are they sure she is coming> I mean this is a Clinton. It could be a lie or a stunt to make the Liberals thinks she is coming. I want sources.

    I work just down the road from Wake Tech (on the Fuquay side). Our address is Raleigh just like Wake Tech. So, I guess she will be in Raleigh on Thursday.
