Obama to visit Bay Area again next month

My esteemed colleague Carla Marinucci at the Chronicle had the scoop, but the White House official to whom I subsequently reached out told me exactly what somebody apparently told her:

Next month, the President will travel to San Francisco, CA and Reno, NV to discuss his plans to strengthen our economy and win the future. More details will be released as they become available.

UPDATE @ 4:20 P.M.: My White House official was only mildly amused, if that, when I inquired if Charlie Sheen’s recent notoriety has taken any of the air out of this whole “WINNING! the future” thing that President Obama has been flogging this year.
