WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is taking his economic message to Ohio, using a Cleveland steel plant as the setting to promote his energy efficiency, business attraction and auto industry policies.

Obama is also likely to address the status of the health care law after his administration announced that only 26,794 people enrolled for insurance on the trouble-plagued federal website during October. In a bright spot for Obama, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is one of a few Republican governors to take advantage of the law's Medicaid expansion to reach more low-income Americans.

Obama will visit a plant owned by ArcelorMittal, a Luxembourg-based steel company that has benefited from the auto industry resurgence. It manufactures advanced high-strength steel that contributes to automobile fuel efficiency.

Obama later will attend a political fundraiser in Philadelphia.
