Obama Visits NYC to Raise Money, Speak About Libya
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
President Barack Obama is slated to visit the city Tuesday where he will raise funds for Democrats and again make his pitch for U.S. intervention in Libya to the networks.
Fresh off his televised address to the nation on the status of the U.S. intervention in Libya, Obama is expected to touch on the topic at the dedication of a building for the U.S. delegation to the United Nations Tuesday afternoon. It is being renamed posthumously after Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, who died in a 1996 plane crash.
Obama will hold two Democratic National Committee fundraisers in Harlem later in the evening. A fundraiser at the new Red Rooster restaurant is expected to draw $1.5 million. Obama will also head to the Studio Museum.
