Obama, Biden to address Democrat meeting in Baltimore
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will address House Democrats at their annual issues conference in Baltimore later this month, a White House official confirmed Tuesday.
House Democrats will meet in the city for their annual issues retreat at the end of the month, a gathering that is closed to the public. The president is expected to attend on Jan. 28.
The meeting is expected to take place at an Inner Harbor, several aides said.
A spokeswoman for the House Democratic Caucus chairman, Rep. Xavier Becerra of California, did not respond to a request for information about the retreat. Becerra told Politico that Democratic climate change activist Tom Steyer and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will also address the lawmakers.
Becerra told Politico that Rawlings-Blake’s appearance is intended to give “folks that understand the city of Baltimore the chance to speak about Baltimore.”
