Buffalo, New York (CNN) –- President Obama will visit the Youngstown, Ohio area on Tuesday to continue his tour of main street America.
In recent weeks, the President has visited Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and New York to tout the improving economy and more recently, positive jobs numbers. The government's latest monthly jobs report, released Friday, showed employers added 290,000 jobs in April, the best gain in four years.
Youngstown is considered a "Rust Belt" city where steel manufacturing once thrived. But the city has long suffered from a declining economy and a shrinking population. The area has seen some success in recent years by creating high tech jobs.
