Obama returns to Richmond on September 9th

President Barack Obama will make another stop in Richmond on Friday September 9th. The visit will come on the day after his highly anticipated address to a joint session of Congress. A White House official on background confirmed the president’s plans, but could not provide any specifics on his trip.

In his address to Congress,  the president will reveal his long awaited jobs plan, aimed at boosting the country’s unemployment rate which as languished around 9% for the bulk of his presidency.

The president seems to like Richmond. He made frequent visits here during his campaign for the White House and around this time last year he visited with a family from Stratford Hills and hosted a small community forum on economic issues at the SouthHampton Community Center.

This visit could be part of a tour to drum up support for the jobs plans.  It probably doesn’t hurt that Virginia, and Richmond in particular, are expected to be important battlegrounds in next year’s presidential campaign.

We are still working to learn more about the president’s visit. When we get more details we will share them with you.
