President Obama is scheduled to visit East Lansing today for a bill signing ceremony at Michigan State University. However, according to the Detroit News, the POTUS has a lunch appointment prior to the rare out of Washington bill signing.
The visit takes on added significance because Obama, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, will lunch with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. The White House extended the lunch invitation to Duggan, which officials described as rare, on Wednesday. It was not immediately clear where the two would go.
Last month during the North American International Auto Show, Vice President Joe Biden visited Detroit and dined with Mayor Duggan.
The President is scheduled to sign a major farm bill at 2 p.m. on the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing.
