WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will urge Congress to get to work this week on passing individual pieces of his larger, now-defunct jobs bill during a three-day bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia.

Both southern states broke for Obama in the 2008 election, and he'll need them again in his win column in next November's election.

As Obama makes his way through North Carolina and Virginia, he'll be calling on lawmakers to pass components of his bill that provide assistance to states to hire or prevent laying off teachers and first responders. Obama also wants lawmakers to pass $50 billion in new spending on infrastructure.

The president's bus tour starts Monday morning in Asheville, N.C.
