Obama: The college tour

“Wooing young voters, President Barack Obama is on a blitz to keep the cost of college loans from soaring for millions of students, taking his message to three states strategically important to his re-election bid,” AP writes. “By taking on student debt, Obama is speaking to middle-class America and targeting an enormous burden that threatens the economic recovery.”

The Raleigh News & Observer’s lede: “President Barack Obama arrives at UNC-Chapel Hill on Tuesday with a message that may resonate with young voters worried about their economic future.”

The law firm Charlie Crist works for gave a Super PAC supporting President Obama $50,000, the Center for Public Integrity finds. The Tampa Bay Times: “It's not terribly surprising given John Morgan [who runs the firm] is a big time Democratic donor and has hosted fundraisers for the president's re-election effort. But it adds a layer to Crist's political conversion, from Republican governor to independent candidate for U.S. Senate to talked about Democratic candidate for governor.”
