Michelle Obama Returns to Virginia

Anita Kumar

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama, will campaign in Virginia Wednesday.

She will host a women's economic roundtable in Richmond and a Women for Obama voter registration rally in Charlottesville.

Obama will tout her husband's plans to offer a $1,000 tax credit for working families, equal pay for equal work and a $4,000 college tuition tax credit in exchange for community service. She will be joined by Lilly Ledbetter, an Alabama woman whose fight for equal pay brought her to the Supreme Court, and inspired the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Obama started the series of women roundtable discussions early in the primary season to talk about the economy's impact on working women and families. She hosted a roundtable discussion with military spouses in Norfolk last month to discuss challenges facing military spouses and their families.

The campaign has yet to release other details about Wednesday's visit.
