First lady Michelle Obama comes to Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - First Lady Michelle Obama will be in speaking at the Carpenter Center Thursday afternoon.

She will be speaking at Center Stage to grassroot supporters. All tickets to the event have been claimed.

The last time Mrs. Obama was in Richmond was back in May when the president kicked off his campaign at VCU's Siegel Center.

She had to cancel campaign stops in Virginia in July because of the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shootings.

This is the first of two stops in Central Virginia for the First Lady. She will be speaking at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg on Thursday evening.
