West Wing Report, Oct. 11, 2010

22 days to go and the White House is in full campaign mode, as President Obama and the Democrats try to slow down what's expected to be a Republican juggernaut on election night.

After a Philadelphia rally yesterday, the President is on the road for much of the week, beginning with today's fundraising trip to Miami. Tomorrow and Thursday, he'll focus on getting young adults to vote - crucial to his 2008 victory - with one town hall at George Washington University here in Washington, and another on Thursday that'll be aired live on MTV, the Country Music Television and Black Entertainment TV.

Friday, Obama and Delaware's favorite son, Vice-President Biden, campaign in Wilmington for Senate candidate Chris Coons - who leads Republican nominee Christine O'Donnell by a double-digit margin. They're running for Biden's old seat.

Saturday, the President travels to Boston, where he'll campaign with Governor Deval Patrick and raise some cash.

And on Sunday, Obama will be joined by First Lady Michelle Obama in Ohio, where they'll campaign with Governor Ted Strickland - and raise more cash still.


Later, the President will hold a meeting with Cabinet secretaries, former secretaries of Transportation and mayors and governors on infrastructure investment in the State Dining Room. This meeting is closed press. The President will then deliver a statement to the press in the Rose Garden. This statement is open press.

Later in the morning, the President will meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed press.

In the afternoon, the President will meet with the students from the movie Waiting for Superman in the Oval Office. There will be a spray for pool still photographers only.

Later in the afternoon, the President will travel to Miami, Florida. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at Miami International Airport are open press.

In the evening, the President will deliver remarks at a DCCC reception and then at a dinner for the DCCC at a private residence in Miami, Florida. There will be print pool coverage of the President’s remarks.
The President will return to Washington, DC at night. The departure from Miami International Airport and the arrival on the South Lawn are open press.
