Rep.: Obama to campaign for Connecticut Democrats

President Barack Obama will be visiting Connecticut three days before the midterm elections in support of the state's Democratic candidates.

The Connecticut Post reported that U.S. Rep. Jim Himes told supporters about the Oct. 30 visit during a campaign fundraiser Tuesday night. State party chairwoman Nancy DiNardo confirmed the visit to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The White House did not immediately confirm the visit. DiNardo says Obama will appear in Bridgeport.

Himes is locked in a close race for re-election against Republican state Sen. Dan Debicella.

Dinardo says the appearance will not only be for Himes, but for all Democrats running for office in the state.
