The March 4 primaries, which include Texas, are now about a week away. The candidates will be giving the Lone Star State and Houston a lot of attention in the coming days. We've been hearing so much about the rally cry for change with Barack Obama. Today, it is his wife who will deliver that message to Texans, as early voting numbers continue to roll in at a hasty pace.

Barrack Obama spoke last week at a rally in downtown Houston. That was part of a four-day "Stand for Change" tour across Texas. Today, his wife Michelle will make a trio of visits in the southeast portion of the state, with stops in Beaumont, Galveston and Houston.

Mrs. Obama described the enthusiasm and optimism afforded her husband during his last Texas visit incredible.

After leaving Beaumont this afternoon, Michelle Obama will appear at the Grand 1894 Opera House on 2020 Post Office Street in Galveston.

The doors there open at 4pm and from there, she will travel to the University of Houston, University Center, where the doors open at 6:30pm. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.

As for her husband, Barack Obama will remain in Ohio today with a campaign swing slated for Cincinnati. Hillary Clinton, meantime, will attend fundraisers in Rhode Island and Boston.
