EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama will spend the latter part of next week riding a bus through two Northeastern states to talk about the economy and building the middle class.

The White House says the president will make stops next Thursday and Friday in New York and Pennsylvania. Further details were not released.

Obama last month began a series of speeches around the country on his ideas for how to build the middle class and boost the economy.

The trips have taken him to Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Tennessee and Arizona to discuss how spending money on roads and bridges, investing in manufacturing and helping homeowners can lead to economic growth.

The tour is also meant to help Obama lay the groundwork for the fall debate with Congress over the budget.
