First lady to attend fundraiser

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama is coming to Kentucky to headline a fundraiser for her husband's re-election campaign.

The fundraiser is set for Thursday evening at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage in Louisville.

The Obama campaign says tickets will start at $100. The event is expected to draw hundreds of Obama supporters.

President Barack Obama lost Kentucky by a wide margin in winning the White House in 2008, and the Democratic president has struggled to win over Kentucky voters during his term.
