This will be her second meeting with the president this week. Earlier, she was in Washington attending a meeting of the National Governors Association. While in D.C., she attended a White House dinner thrown for the governors, Rob Christensen reports.
Sen. Kay Hagan is also planning to be with Obama, who is expected to outline his plans for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq.
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield of Wilson, was one of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus who met Thursday with Obama in the White House.
Butterfield said asked the president to protect working families from any financial fallout from the greenhouse gas reduction policy.
"When climate change legislation is enacted, poor people could be forced to bear a disproportionate share of the pain," Butterfield said. "We have an obligation to avoid this."
