WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has chosen Arizona for the next stop on his middle-class speech tour.
The White House says Obama will visit Phoenix next Tuesday to lay out ideas for helping homeowners and others who want to own a home. Obama last week began a series of speeches outlining his ideas for how to help grow the middle class and boost the economy.
Next Tuesday afternoon, the president will head to Burbank, Calif., to spread his economic message during an appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the next day, on Wednesday, Obama has scheduled a visit with troops and their families at Camp Pendleton.
