Obama Cancels Visit To Lexington

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama has canceled a scheduled appearance in Lexington.

He was scheduled to speak at an event at the nursing school on the campus of the University of Kentucky on Tuesday morning.

His campaign sent out an e-mail on Monday afternoon, saying he wouldn't appear in Lexington. He'll return to Washington, D.C on Monday night because he reportedly has some important votes to make.

Obama's last visit to Lexington was in August.

The Illinois senator will still make a scheduled appearance at an event in Louisville on Monday night. He'll speak at a rally at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

Voters in West Virginia headed to the polls on Tuesday. Hillary Clinton is widely expected to win that contest, but Obama still has the lead when it comes to the popular vote.
