SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barak Obama will visit Utah this weekend but won't be holding a public rally.

His supporters say they'll hold their own rally.

A group of 50 to 100 sign-waiving Obama supporters plan to greet the senator from Illinois at Kimball Junction Sunday.

Obama will be headed to Park City for a $500 to $2,300 per person fundraiser at a private home.

Obama's visit will be the forth stop by a Democratic presidential candidate in this red state in two months.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards held a fundraising reception and press conference in Salt Lake City in early June. Last month, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson spoke to a Democratic Party dinner and Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd addressed the state Democratic convention.
