Obama to visit Pittsburgh-area steel plant

Officials say President Barack Obama will visit a western Pennsylvania steel plant after delivering this week's State of the Union address.

A White House spokesman said Sunday that the president will travel to U.S. Steel's Irvin plant in West Mifflin on Wednesday to deliver remarks on the economy.

The company says the Irvin plant produces sheet metal products from the steel slabs produced at the Edgar Thomson plant in Braddock.

Obama will also be visiting the Washington suburbs of Prince George's County, Md. on Wednesday and will go to Milwaukee and Nashville on Thursday.

The president will deliver his annual State of the Union speech on Tuesday night.
