VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - An 11-year-old girl in Vermillion who was disappointed that President Barack Obama had waited so long to visit South Dakota sent him a letter telling him so - and the White House tweeted it.

The letter from the girl named Rebecca listed attributes of the state and included a drawing of a broken heart, with the caption “This is my heart because you haven’t visited South Dakota!”

The White House tweeted the letter Thursday with the comment, “Rebecca’s heart can officially mend when President Obama visits South Dakota tomorrow.”

Obama is giving the commencement address at Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown. It’s his first trip to South Dakota - the only state he hasn’t yet visited.
