President Obama will spend today promoting his jobs bill and raising campaign cash in Texas, the home state of GOP presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry.
The president will fly to Dallas this morning where he will deliver remarks at two campaign events before heading to Mesquite, Texas, to pitch his $447 billion jobs bill at a local school.
The president’s remarks are expected to highlight how the American Jobs Act would prevent teacher layoffs and modernize schools buildings and campuses across the country, while once again urging Congress to pass the bill.
Then, it’s off to St. Louis, Mo., where the president will attend two more campaign fundraisers before returning to Washington late this evening.
