Obama arrived at Hill Air Force Base near Ogden, Utah, on Thursday to tour a technology company and talk about job training. He had visited Louisville, Kentucky, earlier in the day.

Obama began the year four states short of having visited all 50. The White House quickly scheduled trips to Idaho and South Carolina before Friday's stop in Utah.

It's unclear how soon Obama will visit South Dakota. But with 21 months left on his term, he has plenty of time to get there.
