Preparations Are Under Way For President's Visit

03/30/12 6:06AM

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.
