CLEVELAND -- President Obama will make his first trip to Ohio since visiting Ohio State University this past May -- and this time he'll be in Cleveland.

A spokesperson from Cleveland steel company ArcelorMittal confirmed the president's plan to visit the mill on Thursday.

Mark Granakis, president of Steelworkers Local 979, says Obama is expected to deliver a speech about the economy.

"I was excited to hear the news that he's coming," Granakis said when told of the president's visit by company executives Sunday.

Representatives from the White House are expected to release additional details later this week.
