President Obama in NYC to raise money for Democratic primary

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama will spend time in New York City Thursday, raising campaign money for the Democratic primary.

Obama will arrive in the city about 4 p.m. He’ll first attend a private event, then later in the evening attend a house majority PAC round table before departing about 9:15 p.m.

The stop follows a visit to an interstate bridge in Delaware that’s been closed because of tilting supports as Obama presses for more spending on roads and other public infrastructure programs.

The House passed a measure this week to keep transportation aid flowing to states through May.

Obama said that’s fine, but he spent the week pressing Congress for a more stable source of funding.
