WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama will focus today on creating jobs and boosting advanced manufacturing when he discusses the U.S. economy in North Carolina.

The White House says Obama will announce in Raleigh that a consortium of businesses and universities led by North Carolina State University has been chosen to lead a manufacturing innovation institute for next-generation power electronics.
