UPDATE: The Obama event is being set up in front of the school, rather than the stadium. It will be moved inside if necessary.
President Barack Obama is expected to make a campaign stop in Leesburg next Thursday, according to his campaign.
Obama for America announced Friday that the president will travel to Virginia, Ohio, and Florida next week to lay out his vision to rebuild the economy from the middle out, cut taxes for middle-class families and reduce the country’s deficit.
On Wednesday, Aug. 1, the president will travel to Mansfield and Akron, OH, for campaign events and on Thursday, Aug. 2, he will travel to Leesburg and Orlando for campaign events.
The Obama campaign has an office in Leesburg, one of many in Virginia, considered a battleground state in the 2012 presidential election. Obama visited Leesburg in October 2008, a month before he was elected president.
Donors in Leesburg's 20175 ZIP code lean toward Obama, donating 53.44 percent more to Obama than to GOP challenger Mitt Romney, according to the Virginia Public Access Project. In the 20175 ZIP code, 66 percent of donors giving to the presidential campaigns are giving to the Obama campaign.
Additional details on the president’s campaign events are forthcoming.
