President Obama to visit 5 states following State of the Union, Michigan included
Tonight, we will hear about the "State of the State" from Governor Snyder, next week it's the "State of the Union" from President Obama.
After he delivers the State of the Union address next Tuesday night (January 24), Mr. Obama will travel around the country with his message.
One of those stops will include Detroit, Michigan.
From the Associated Press:
The White House says President Barack Obama plans to travel to five states critical to his re-election campaign following next week's State of the Union address.
The president will discuss proposals from Tuesday's address in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Phoenix on Wednesday, and in Las Vegas and Denver on Thursday. On Friday, Obama will make remarks in Detroit.
The five states are expected to be heavily contested by both Obama and his Republican challenger this year.
Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2008, sending him on a path to the White House. Colorado, Nevada and Arizona are three Western states the president's campaign covets while Michigan is expected to get ample attention from Republicans after the economic recession hurt the state's manufacturing base.
