Obama Announces Visit To His 50th State, South Dakota

WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Barack Obama says he’ll visit South Dakota, his 50th state, next month.

Obama had made it to just 46 states by the start of the year. That left Idaho, South Carolina, Utah and South Dakota yearning for a presidential sighting.

The White House quickly scheduled presidential appearances in Idaho a nd South Carolina, and Obama stopped in Utah this month. When Obama does make it to South Dakota, he will be only the fourth president to have touched down in every state.
