(RALEIGH) -- Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will be in North Carolina on Thursday. Romney will stop in Asheville. Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling explained some for the reasons why Romney is stumping in that part of the state.

"Buncombe County is one of only about 10 counties in the whole country with over 100,000 voters that has voted for the winning presidential candidate the last six presidential elections, so it's not just a bellweather for North Carolina but really kind of a bellweather county nationally," said Jensen.

Arizona Sen. John McCain headed Romney campaign events for veterans and military families in Cary and Fayetteville on Tuesday. Jill Biden will visit North Carolina this weekend to campaign for the Democratic Party's ticket. The wife of Vice President Joe Biden is expected to attend campaign events on Saturday. The Vice President campaigned last week in Charlotte and Asheville.
