WFIE is reporting that President Obama will be headed to the Tri-State this week for a visit.  The exact purpose or location is still unknown, but officials are saying that Air Force One is scheduled to land at Evansville Regional Airport on Friday.

WFIE reports that the President will be taken to Gibson County to visit with a local business.  EVV representative, Diana Page has made the following statement:

"Evansville Regional Airport has been contacted by the Air Force One pre planning group, however, at this point we do not know what time, day, or even if President Obama will be coming to Evansville.  I'm sure those details will be coming forth soon and we'll share those once available, but right now we just don't have that information."
