President Obama will return to Washington next week to campaign for Sen. Patty Murray’s re-election. The two will appear at a rally at the University of Washington’s Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Oct. 21.
Obama was in Seattle on Aug. 17 to talk about small business assistance and attend two fund-raisers for Murray and the state Democratic Party. Vice President Joe Biden was at a rally for Murray last Friday at the University of Washington Tacoma branch campus and First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled for a campaign stop on Oct. 25.
Details for the Michelle Obama event haven’t been released but a Murray campaign source confirmed it is still on the schedule.
Expect Rossi forces to say soon (if they haven’t already) that all this attention shows how well he’s doing and how worried Democrats are that she’s losing.
