Obama visiting Boston, Cambridge for Democratic fundraisers

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is heading to Boston to help raise money for the Democratic Party.

Obama is set to attend a round-table discussion fundraiser Wednesday 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.

Obama's 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 governors, including Gov. Deval Patrick.

Massachusetts is debating a minimum wage increase. The Senate has approved a bill and a minimum wage question is heading to the November ballot.
