UPDATE:  

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will make stops in Illinois and Missouri next week to draw attention to the economy and to measures he argues will help step up the recovery.

The White House says Obama will travel Wednesday to Galesburg, Ill., and Warrensburg, Mo., to make his case for spending on infrastructure and for universal pre-school programs. Obama is also expected to highlight the economic benefits of overhauling immigration laws.

Both stops are in rural communities that have seen party switches in their congressional representation within the past three years - one to Democrat and the other Republican.

The day-trip comes during a high point for the White House, a week after the Senate gave Obama a significant victory by approving several stalled administration nominations.

 

July 18, 2013:  The White House has confirmed that President Obama will be headed to Galesburg on Wednesday, July 24th.

He will be in town to discuss the economy.

We will have more information as the story develops.
