President Obama took his jobs push to North Carolina Wednesday, another swing state that he won in 2008 but is in danger of losing in 2012. Here's the report from CNN Wires:
Raleigh, North Carolina (CNN) - President Barack Obama took the push for his $447 billion jobs plan to the politically pivotal state of North Carolina Wednesday, telling an enthusiastic college crowd that it's time to "finally get Washington to act."
"If you're in favor of America's job creators, this is your bill," Obama told an audience in a campaign-style setting at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. "The time for hand-wringing is over. ... We've got to pass this bill right away."
The president made a similar plea during visits to Ohio on Tuesday and Virginia on Friday. All three states - Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia - were carried by Obama in 2008 but are considered up for grabs in the 2012 presidential race.
