Last week, President Obama visited key states on his “Betting on America” tour and highlighted his vision of an economy that will grow from the middle class and out. Now California’s Obama for America team, along with mayors, city council members, and state legislators will host a two week “Betting on California” press tour throughout the state to illustrate how the administration’s policies are creating an American economy that is built to last and helping everyday Californians.

Speakers will highlight President Obama’s commitment to the next generation of voters. The President is committed to ensuring that young adults have a fair shot at the opportunities their parents had - good jobs, good benefits and the chance to own a home. He also understands that to create the jobs of the future, we need to out-innovate and out-build our global competitors in cutting-edge industries like clean energy and technology.  And that starts with out-educating the world by ensuring that every American has access to good schools and an affordable college education.
