WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama is likely to hit the road again, not far away from his re-election bid, to begin hosting campaign-style events in seek of support for his second-term agenda, said the White House on Wednesday.
"I think you can fully expect that his commitment to engaging the American people in these important discussions about our future will continue," said White House spokesman Jay Carney at the daily briefing.
Though no scheduling announcement in hand to make, Carney assured that Obama will hit the road "throughout his second term," believing it is the right strategy to engage the public.
"The President will travel. You can expect that. He will, as he does, make the case to the American people for the vision he laid out in his inaugural address, and the specifics that he will lay out at his State of the Union address on February 12," said Carney.
The President and other administration officials have talked about enlisting the public in putting pressure on Congress to move forward his second-term agenda.
The efforts may start with the Obama administration's gun violence reduction agenda. U.S. Vice President Biden and other White House officials will travel to Richmond, Virginia on Friday to campaign for Obama's plan to reduce gun violence, the first after the president unveiled his whole package of gun control agenda last week.
The president's campaign team has also already begun sending e- mails in support of his gun violence reduction proposals.
