The White House has confirmed to UtahPolicy.com that President Barack Obama will speak at Hill Air Force Base on Friday..
Utah is one of the two states the president has yet to visit during his tenure in office. The other is South Dakota.
In a statement a White House official told UtahPolicy.com – "On Thursday, April 2, the President will travel to Louisville, Kentucky for an event on the economy. On Friday, April 3, the President will visit Hill Air Force Base in Utah for an event on the economy.
