Obama planned to deliver remarks at the fundraiser today at Boston's Taj Hotel for Markey and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Markey and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee have a joint fundraising committee.

Markey said Tuesday he was looking forward to the visit, calling Obama a "very iconic, powerful figure."
