Political blog: Will Obama campaign in Augusta?

There is speculation that President Obama will visit Georgia next month and Augusta might be on the itinerary.

Earlier this month, state Democratic chairman Mike Berlon said Obama likely will stump in Georgia, but not until later in the year.

But Democratic insiders who asked not to be named said the president will appear in Atlanta in March and possibly in Augusta and Albany. Savannah is not likely to be part of the itinerary, they added, but hasn’t been ruled out.

Party activists said Augusta, Albany and Savannah are being considered because they are in two-state media markets. But Albany, they added, might have a leg up because it’s near Florida, considered a key battleground this year.
