To enhance his $447 billion jobs plans act that he presented in September, President Obama has scheduled a bus tour through the politically important states of North Carolina and Virginia. According to the White House the tentative dates are Oct. 17-19, 2011.
“The trip will be similar to a three-day bus tour through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois the president went on in August. Obama is intent on keeping up the pressure on Congress over his jobs proposal, a message the White House believes can resonate with the public, and he often picks states that could be important for his 2012 re-election chances. North Carolina and Virginia are both traditionally Republican states that Obama won in 2008,” the White House confirmed.
These two states have been previously been pro- Republican, however Obama won against McCain in 2008 in these states.
Further specifications will be revealed at a later date, as per the White House announcement.
