While Congress investigates the Obama Administration’s actions during the Benghazi terrorist attack this week, President Obama will be leaving town to promote his “jobs” agenda in what the Associated Press dubs “a series of day trips.”

The White House says President Barack Obama’s trip to Austin, Texas, on Thursday will kick off a series of day trips aimed at highlighting his proposals on jobs and the economy.

While in Texas, Obama will visit a technical high school and meet with entrepreneurs. He’ll also drop in on a tech company and talk with blue-collar workers.

The trip shows Obama wants to keep Americans focused on his economic proposals even while Congress is busy with an immigration overhaul and confirmation for Obama’s second-term Cabinet nominees.
