THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010

In the morning, the President will visit the Ford Motor Company Chicago Assembly Plant and continue to tell the story of how the tough choices he made to save the American auto industry were necessary to save a million American jobs, stave off economic devastation in our auto communities and revitalize an entire American industry. Later this year, the Chicago Assembly Plant will begin production of the new, fuel efficient 2011 Ford Explorer. Ford just announced that thanks in part to new Department of Energy loan guarantees aimed at helping companies retool their plants to make more fuel efficient vehicles, the Chicago plant is adding 1,200 new jobs. There will be travel pool coverage of the tour, and the President's remarks are open press.

In the afternoon, the President will deliver remarks on behalf of Senate Candidate Alexi Giannoulias at the Palmer House Hilton. Later, the President will deliver remarks at a DNC finance event at the Chicago Cultural Center. There will be travel pool coverage of the President's remarks.
