President Obama Addresses The Nation During State Of The Union Address

 

Nearly two months after visiting Boston in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, President Barack Obama will be back in the city Wednesday to campaign for Congressman Edward Markey, who is running against Republican Gabriel Gomez in the special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's seat.

 

 

In a fundraising appeal Tuesday, Gomez forecast negative ads against him from the “Democratic machine” and noted President Barack Obama’s plan to campaign in Massachusetts Wednesday for Markey, saying Obama was coming because he knows “I won’t be a Fall-in-line legislator like Congressman Markey.”

 

Later in the afternoon, Obama is expected to leave Boston for Miami to attend a pair of fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee.

 

He is expected to return to the White House this evening.
