President Obama awoke in Greensboro, N.C., today and will spend the second day of his bus tour pushing for Congress to pass portions of his jobs bill at events in North Carolina and Virginia.
In particular, the president will continue to focus on education, urging lawmakers to pass a portion of the bill that would provide $35 billion for states to fund teachers and first responders. The president is also trying to court voters in the key states of North Carolina and Virginia.
The president’s day begins with a roundtable meeting with teachers at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, N.C. Obama will also deliver remarks later in the morning at the school.
If Monday was any indication, expect the president to continue to ramp up his attack on Republicans for failing to pass his $447 billion jobs bill and for their own plan, which Obama says will not create jobs immediately.
The president’s bus tour will later head into Virginia where he will visit a high school computer lab and observe a robotics demonstration before delivering remarks at Greensville County High School in Emporia, Va.
The president will spend the night in Hampton, Va.
