ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The White House released more details Thursday about President Barack Obama's planned campaign stop in Asheville next week.

Officials said the president will speak to a crowd at the Asheville Regional Airport at 10:50 a.m. Monday morning.

The event is free and open to the public, but attendees will need a ticket.

The ticket will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis at gate six of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center at 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

From Asheville, the president will travel to Millers Creek and Greensboro in North Carolina and then on to Virginia.

Both North Carolina and Virginia are considered crucial to Obama's re-election campaign.
