WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama plans to travel to Scranton, Pa., next week to talk about his jobs agenda.

Obama will visit Scranton on Wednesday. Scranton is the boyhood home of Vice President Joe Biden, who played up his Scranton roots in 2008 as the Obama ticket courted socially conservative Democrats.

The White House says Obama will travel to New York later that evening to attend campaign events.
