Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will visit Asheville on Friday, Sept. 19, to host a town hall meeting in support of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama. She will appear at noon at Mountain Java, located at 870 Merrimon Ave.
Sebelius will speak about Obama’s economic policy plans and how they will benefit women in North Carolina and nationwide, according to a press release.
Asheville will be Sebelius’ first stop in North Carolina. Later in the day, she plans to host a similar event in Hickory, and on Friday evening she will speak at the Annual Convention of the Democratic Women of North Carolina in Greensboro.
