The Presidential Planner: Obama Pitches Jobs Plan in Denver

Sep 27, 2011 8:25am

President Obama wakes up in Los Angeles this morning and will spend the final day of his three-day western swing in Denver.

Obama will continue to promote his $447 billion jobs bill at Abraham Lincoln High School, where he will focus on investments to modernize the nation’s schools.

“The American Jobs Act proposes a $25 billion investment in school infrastructure that will modernize at least 35,000 public schools – investments that will create jobs while improving classrooms and upgrading our schools to meet 21st century needs,” according to the White House.

While the president carried Colorado by 9 percentage points in 2008, his support in the swing state might be waning. Today marks Obama’s first visit during the 2012 campaign season to the once-predictably red state; his last visit to Colorado was in February 2010.

Obama will return to the White House later this evening.
