First lady Jill Biden to highlight Biden's economic record in Mesa visit after Super Bowl
First lady Jill Biden is going to Mesa on Monday to deliver an economic message after President Joe Biden's State of the Union speech.
Few details were available Wednesday, but the White House said Jill Biden will "highlight the Biden Administration's commitment to strengthening our economy and building pathways to good-paying jobs through career-connected learning."
The first lady disclosed last week that she was coming to Arizona to watch the Super Bowl 57 match-up between the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.
"I'm going. I'll wave to you at the game," the first lady said in a conversation overheard Friday during a stop at the USS Gabrielle Giffords in San Diego.

Joe Biden made a quip about it at the start of Tuesday's prime-time State of the Union address to Congress.
"By the way, Mr. Chief Justice, I may need a court order," the president said before delivering his remarks. "She gets to go to the game ... next week. I have to stay home. Got to work something out here."
