After the memorial ceremony, Obama will come to Houston for a congressional fundraising dinner at the home of local attorney John Eddie Williams. The private, high-dollar event also will feature Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Obama will spend the night in Houston before speaking at the LBJ Presidential Library Civil Rights Summit in Austin Thursday and then returning to Washington.
Several roads around my workplace will be closed - so I’m going to be leaving early today.
“High dollar” = $15,000 a plate.
