President Obama will travel to Columbus on Tuesday to discuss his new job-creation plan, the White House announced Thursday.

Obama will head to Ohio to discuss bipartisan proposals for economic growth and job creation in the American Jobs Act, which Obama is set to unveil in front of a joint session of Congress on Thursday night.

The White House has been promising that Obama's new plan for job creation would offer proposals that Republicans would find enticing enough to sign on to.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been urging Democrats to press their Republican counterparts to sign onto the jobs plan.
