Obama ending Hawaiian vacation, returning to Washington to face voters in re-election year
HONOLULU (AP) ' With an eye on the 2012 campaign, President Barack Obama is wrapping up a Hawaiian vacation and planning to jump back into his re-election campaign.
The president is scheduled to leave Monday evening after a 10-day vacation. He will arrive in Washington on Tuesday morning, just hours before Republican presidential candidates square off in the Iowa caucuses, the first nominating contest of the 2012 campaign.
Obama plans to make his presence in the campaign known quickly.
He will host a live web chat with supporters in Iowa on Tuesday. The next day, he will travel to Cleveland to talk about the economy, the top issue in the race so far.
