A day after his State of the Union speech, President Obama will follow up Wednesday with visits to a Costco store in Maryland and a steel plant in Pennsylvania.
Obama will deliver remarks on the economy Wednesday morning at the Costco in Lanham, the White House said Monday.
The visit to Lanham, about 15 miles from the White House, starts a two-day national tour for Obama in the wake of his annual address to a joint session of Congress.
After Costco, Obama will travel to Pennsylvania for a Wednesday afternoon speech at the U.S. Steel Irvin Plant in West Mifflin. He then travels to the Milwaukee area to spend the night.
On Thursday, Obama will speak in the Milwaukee and Nashville areas before returning to the White House.
The first speech Thursday will be at General Electric's Waukesha Gas Engines facility in Waukesha, Wisc.
This Friday, Obama is scheduled to take a "virtual national tour" via questions from Internet users nationwide during a Google+ Hangout.
The president's State of the Union Address is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET Tuesday; his remarks in Maryland are expected around 10:25 a.m. Wednesday.
