WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon is joining President Barack Obama during his upcoming visit to the University of Central Missouri.

Obama is traveling Wednesday to the Warrensburg school and Galesburg, Illinois to make his case for spending on infrastructure and for universal pre-school programs. The president is also expected to highlight the economic benefits of overhauling immigration laws.

Nixon announced Saturday that he would join Obama during the Missouri stop. He noted that the University of Central Missouri is part of an Innovation Campus initiative that offers accelerated degrees in high-demand fields.

The trip will mark Obama's first visit to the state since a May 2012 commencement speech at Joplin High School. That visit marked the one-year anniversary of a deadly tornado that hit the southwestern Missouri city.

WASHINGTON (AP) — There seems little appetite from either Democrats or Republicans in Washington for a federal rescue of the birthplace of the automobile industry. Detroit now stands as the largest American city ever to file for bankruptcy protection.

During the bleakest days of the Great Recession, Congress agreed in bipartisan votes to bail out two of Detroit's biggest businesses, General Motors and Chrysler.

Such a bailout would be huge, perhaps as much as $20 billion. Federal resources are strained, with the national debt at $16.7 trillion and the federal government struggling under the constraints of automatic spending cuts that took effect in March.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Six months ago, President Barack Obama stood on the steps of the United States Capitol and offered a soaring liberal vision for his second term.

But the intervening months have showcased the political limits of Obama's ambitions. The result has been an uneven and sometimes disjointed start to what could arguably be the most important year of his second term.

Legislative victories have been scarce.

The president's gun control measures were vanquished on Capitol Hill, prospects for a grand deficit reduction deal are slim, and an immigration overhaul faces an uncertain future. Domestic troubles and foreign policy crises have also thrown the White House off course and into a defensive crouch.

The president's top advisers insist they came into the year clear-eyed about the potential pitfalls, particularly on Capitol Hill.
