Obama to take jobs plan on the road
Obama heads to Richmond, Va., the day after giving jobs speech to begin public sales effort
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The White House says President Barack Obama will take his jobs plan on the road next Friday in a visit to Richmond, Va.

The trip on Sept. 9 will allow the president to begin selling the plan to the public a day after unveiling it before a joint session of Congress. It was confirmed by a White House official speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of a public announcement.

Obama will face a tough lift getting congressional Republicans to sign off on his proposals, which are expected to include a mix of tax credits and spending on infrastructure. He could benefit if he gets public sentiment behind the plan.

It comes as the economy is looking even weaker, with a new jobs report showing employers stopped adding jobs in August.
