PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - President Barack Obama is planning another visit to Rhode Island, after a trip last week was canceled so he could monitor the government’s Ebola response from Washington.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said on Friday that Obama will travel to Rhode Island on Oct. 31, the Friday before the Nov. 4 election.

The White House said he would speak at Rhode Island College about the economy and the importance of pursuing policies that help women succeed. It said further details would be announced in the coming days.

Obama was scheduled to visit to Rhode Island College on Oct. 16.

It’s one of several trips Obama is making to the Northeast ahead of the election. Obama plans to visit Maine on Thursday and Connecticut on Sunday, Nov. 2.
