President Barack Obama will visit the city Oct. 30 to campaign for the state’s Democratic candidates.
U.S. Rep. Jim Himes made the announcement Tuesday night at a Democratic Town Committee fundraiser held at Testo’s Restaurant.
“This is terrific news for the city of Bridgeport,” Mayor Bill Finch wrote in an e-mail. “President Obama is extremely popular in our city and his visit on behalf of our Democratic candidates will make a huge impact.”
I would say that if Democrats think the place Barack Obama can do them the most good the Sunday before the election is a D+5 district that he carried 60 percent to 40 percent . . . well, that says a lot right there.
