Preparations Are Under Way For President's Visit
President Barack Obama will be campaigning in Vermont today.
The president has two events scheduled here - one at the University of Vermont, and the other at a South Burlington hotel.
It's his first visit to Vermont since his election.
The last visit to the state by a sitting president was 17 years ago, when Bill Clinton stopped here in 1995.
Obama easily carried Vermont in 2008, winning 68 percent of the vote. A recent poll shows his supporters will remain committed to him in 2012.
Police are warning that there will be traffic tie-ups in the Chittenden County area today. Sign boards warn of 15 minute closures, but details of those closures are not being released.
