(CNN) – With a little over three weeks before the midterm elections, House Minority Leader John Boehner will deliver a major campaign speech from his hometown in Ohio on Friday. The top House Republican, in an address planned at a small manufacturing company in West Chester, will argue that voters should reject the economic policies of Democrats running Washington and elect Republicans, who he says will make Congress more responsive to the American people.
A Boehner aide familiar with his speech tells CNN that "he will focus on the issue of jobs, and how the November election will be a referendum on President Obama and Washington Democrats' job-killing record."
Boehner is also expected to tout House Republicans' "Pledge to America," the midterm manifesto unveiled last month that focuses heavily on cutting spending and reducing taxes.
Boehner has delivered a series of policy speeches in the last few months on a range of issues such as the economy and social issues, but his aide stressed this is the first "campaign" speech. Last week in Washington, Boehner pledged a series of congressional reforms if he becomes House Speaker, which is expected should Republicans regain control of the chamber.
