Washington, D.C. — President Bush is making a rare trip to northern California.
The White House says the president will be travelling to San Jose next Friday to push his plan to increase federal research funding. The visit will be Bush´s fourth to Silicon Valley but only his second to San Jose since taking office.
After speaking in San Jose, Bush will head to St. Helena, then attend a Republican gathering in Palm Springs on Saturday. Following that he will attend church and eat lunch with Marine and Navy families in Twentynine Palms on Sunday.
