First lady Michelle Obama is planning to be in Boston to meet with victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. She'll also attend a fundraiser for Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Edward Markey.
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."
