Dr. Jill Biden and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden will make a stop on the campaign trail in Western North Carolina Sunday.

Obama for America offices are located at 230 Hilliard Avenue on the corner of S. French Broad and Hilliard, across from Aston Park and the United Way.
The Asheville Citizen-Times story about Biden’s visit is here. It notes the Republican response:
Obama hasn’t campaigned in the state since his party’s convention in Charlotte in September, said Rob Lockwood, spokesman for the state Republican Party.
The party put together an airport runway in an alley in Winston-Salem on Thursday, complete with an Obama campaign logo and sign that said, “Land here,” as Obama flew over on his way from Virginia to Florida, Lockwood said.
Republican notables U.S Sen. Richard Burr, U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx and party Chairman Robin Hayes attended.
