Washington • Michelle Obama is expected to headline a fundraiser in Utah in late July, marking her first visit to the state since she made a brief campaign stop in 2008.
The president's re-election team is still working on the details of the first lady's trip. Utah Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Holland initially said the fundraiser would take place July 26, with Obama starting the day in Colorado before flying in for events in either Salt Lake City, Park City or perhaps both. After receiving a call from the Democratic National Committee, which would host the event, Holland says the date is fluid but the fundraiser is still a go.
"We hope as many people as possible have some contact with her," he said. "I hear people saying that they see her as someone who has added a lot of class to the White House."
