President Obama to discuss health care plans in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - President Barack Obama will visit North Carolina and Virginia this week to discuss his health care plans as he tries to gather public support to pass his proposals this year.

The White House says Obama will travel to Raleigh on Wednesday for a midday town hall at a high school.

Then the president will head to another town hall that afternoon at a supermarket in Bristol, Va.
