Obama to visit MUW today

The buildup to Tuesday’s presidential primaries in Mississippi includes Sen. Barack Obama’s visit to Columbus today, where the Democrat from Illinois will hold a town hall meeting at 9:30 a.m. on the campus of Mississippi University for Women.

Later in the day, he will hold a rally at Jackson State University.

His opponent, Hillary Clinton, won’t be in the state – she was here Thursday and Friday – but her daughter, Chelsea, will be in Oxford to answer questions from the public at 10 a.m. at the Ole Miss Student Union.

She will host similar events in Batesville and Grenada later in the day.
