Obama planning visit to Boston for DNC events

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is planning a trip to Boston to attend Democratic Party events.

Obama's Wednesday visit follows a stop at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain to renew his push to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

During his stop in Connecticut, Obama will appear with Democratic Govs. Dannel Malloy of Connecticut, Peter Shumlin of Vermont and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island.

Gov. Deval Patrick will also participate.

After the Connecticut stop, Obama will travel to Boston Logan International Airport to participate in Democratic National Committee events.

A higher minimum wage and an overhaul of immigration laws are Obama priorities.

The Massachusetts Senate has approved a bill that would raise the state's minimum wage to $11 an hour by January 2016.
