Michelle Obama Visits Alabama

By Associated Press

Birmingham, AL – Michelle Obama visits Birmingham today to attend a private fundraising luncheon.

Her husband, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, campaigned in Birmingham in late January before winning the state's Democratic presidential primary in February. This is his wife's first campaign appearance in the state.

The event will start at noon at the home of Hillery Head and Giles Perkins, who is a former executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party. The minimum donation is $1,000 per person. The money will go to the Obama Victory Fund.
