(AP) – Some love for Missouri’s automotive industry, from the Commander in Chief. President Barack Obama visits a Ford Motor Company plant near Kansas City Friday.
Obama will go to Ford’s new stamping plant in Liberty, located next to the auto maker’s Claycomo assembly plant. The goal of the visit is to illustrate the comeback of the nation’s auto industry.
The Claycomo plant makes Ford’s F-150 pickup truck. The stamping plant was built to produce parts for a new van model. Missouri lawmakers approved an incentives package for automotive manufacturing in 2010.
It’s the second trip to Missouri in two months for the Commander-In-Chief. He spoke at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg in late July.
