Obama’s N.Y. visit to include Binghamton
EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama will hit the road next week to lay out his plan for reducing college costs.
The White House said Obama will embark on a 2-day bus tour next week, stopping in Buffalo, Syracuse and Binghamton in New York. He’ll also visit northeastern Pennsylvania.
