Obama Pitching Economic Priorities In Minnesota

President Barack Obama is pitching his ideas to boost the American middle class in Minnesota, a state that already has embraced a key component of the president’s economic agenda by moving to raise its minimum wage. Obama was closing a two-day trip to the Minneapolis area on Friday with a speech on the economy at a castle-shaped bandshell on picturesque Lake Harriet. He’ll seek to frame his agenda in terms that resonate for Americans still struggling financially despite the recovery, reinforcing a populist “on your side” economic push that Obama and Democrats are making in the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections.
