The White House has announced new details about President Barack Obama's trip to the Raleigh/Durham area Wednesday.

Officials said he will come to NC State and visit Apex and tour WestStar Precision.

The White House said WestStar is a small business that would benefit from the American Jobs Act the president presented to Congress Monday.

In a news release, the White House said the president will be "emphasizing the need for Congress to pass it now and put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of working Americans, while not adding a dime to the deficit."
