Washington (CNN) – President Obama’s much anticipated campaign event Sunday for embattled Democratic Senate hopeful Martha Coakley will take place at 3 p.m. ET on the campus of Northeastern University, the White House announced late Saturday morning.
Obama’s decision to head to Boston at the 11th hour is evidence that Democratic leaders are very concerned about losing the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s seat to Republican Scott Brown. Coakley and Brown face off Tuesday in the Massachusetts special election.
