President Barack Obama will venture back into Prince George's County on Wednesday following his State of the Union address.

Obama will visit Wednesday a Costco store in Lanham, where he plans to speak about the economy. The trip will be a part of a brief tour in cities including Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Nashville, Tenn., before heading back to D.C. to draw up plans to help individuals dealing with long-term unemployment.

The Costco visit will be at least the third time Obama has held an event in the county since taking office. He made a stop at Prince George's Community College in Largo in March 2012 and again in September 2013 when he spoke on expanding the nation's middle class.
