CHARLOTTE – President Barack Obama will travel to the Charlotte area this week to speak about the economy.

The White House reports he'll visit the Daimler Trucks North America manufacturing plant in Mount Holly on Wednesday.

The president narrowly won North Carolina in 2008 and advisers believe he has a shot in the Tar Heel State again in 2012, but the economic downturn hit the state hard.

At the end of last year, North Carolina ranked 4th among states with the highest unemployment.
