POTUS to visit Boston for Democratic fundraisers

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is in Boston to help raise money for the Democratic Party.

Obama arrived Wednesday afternoon after a Connecticut event with New England governors promoting raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Massachusetts also is debating a minimum wage increase.

The president arrived with Gov. Deval Patrick on Air Force One at Logan International Airport and was greeted by Boston Mayor Martin Walsh.

Obama is to attend a round-table discussion fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee with about 25 supporters in Cambridge.

Obama is then scheduled to headline a DNC dinner in Boston at the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter with about 70 backers. The event is also intended to raise money for the party.
