President Obama to visit Jacksonville on Friday, deliver speech on stimulus



President Obama will travel to Jacksonville on Friday for a speech about the stimulus, the White House said.

"He’ll visit Saft, where Americans go to work every day in a facility funded by the Recovery Act building the lithium-ion batteries that help integrate renewable energy into our grid and power our hybrids. And he’ll talk about the tough choices he faced early in his first term to right America’s course," according to a statement.

The White House said it will release more details in the coming days.
