Portland Prepares for Obama Visit
President Barack Obama is set to land at the Portland International Jetport at 4 p.m. today when he will begin an itinerary that includes two fundraising events in Portland. He is scheduled to speak to a sold out crowd at the Southern Maine Community College this afternoon. Afterwards he will be escorted to the Portland Museum of Art for a 100-person dinner fundraiser. Donations made to attend the dinner ranged from $5000 — $30,000. Anyone traveling through Portland should be aware of street closings during the visit by POTUS.
