Obama hosts job forum

WASHINGTON (AP) ? President Barack Obama will focus on American jobs Wednesday, while trying to keep his own.

He and Vice President Joe Biden will host an “Insourcing American Jobs” forum. They’ll start with a round table with business leaders and industry experts about working with more companies to create jobs. The president then will speak to leaders from the private sector and government.

In the afternoon, Obama will travel to Chicago for three campaign events: a speech at the University of Illinois at Chicago and two gatherings at private homes.

He’ll return to Washington late Wednesday night.
