Obama Cancels Planned Visit to North Carolina Today

President Obama was scheduled to visit North Carolina today but the White House abruptly canceled, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

"The false alarm isn't unprecedented -- but the fact the White House even considered visiting the state on primary election day is interesting. A controversial vote on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and civil unions is on today's ballot. Obama issued a statement against the amendment earlier this year -- but polls show it is likely to win by a solid margin."
