Tonight, Barack Obama will cap off the primary season with Michelle by his side at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, which uncoincidentally, is the site of this year’s Republican Convention, so expect plenty of references to the GOP gathering in his speech.
Tomorrow morning, he’ll try to mollify concerns about his stance toward Israel in a speech to AIPAC. Hillary will also be there, which should add to the drama. I’ll be liveblogging the event from the site, so check back here. Later that morning, Obama pays respects to the SEIU union in a satellite speech to their conference, being held in Peurto Rico.
On Thursday, Obama will be campaigning in Virginia, with a night rally at the Nissan Pavillion in Bristow. The seating capacity is 25,000, so it should be a show of force as the general election gets underway, and since it’s only 40 miles outside of DC, expect plenty of Beltway media attention.
