Obama bringing first lady for last day of bus tour

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) ? President Barack Obama will employ the services of the first lady Wednesday as he wraps up a three-day bus trip to boost public support for his jobs plan.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama will appear together at a military base in Hampton, Va. The White House says they will deliver remarks on the importance of businesses hiring veterans.

Obama will then climb back onto his sleek, million-dollar bus for the final leg of a driving tour that has taken him through rural swaths of North Carolina and Virginia. Both states are politically important to Obama’s re-election bid.

The president will make a final stop Wednesday at a fire station in North Chesterfield, Va., before returning to Washington.
