A Washington official with knowledge of the plans says three upstate New York cities and one in Pennsylvania are on the tentative list of places President Barack Obama will visit next week during a bus tour to talk about the economy and building the middle class.
The White House says the president will visit next Thursday and Friday.
The official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the details haven't been released says Monday the stops will include Buffalo, Syracuse, Binghamton and Scranton.
Obama is giving a series of speeches around the country on his ideas for building the middle class and boosting the economy.
The trips to prepare for the fall budget debate with Congress have taken him to Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Tennessee and Arizona so far.
