Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will sit down with a family in northern Virginia on Monday to discuss the state of the economy, the No. 1 issue threatening to strip Democrats of their congressional majority in November.
Obama will travel to the Fairfax home of John Nicolas and Nicole Armstrong, a married couple with two children. Armstrong recently returned to work part-time as a preschool administrator, in part because, according to the White House, the couple's retirement and college savings took a hit during the recent downturn.
The president will also meet with neighbors of the couple, as well as various small-business owners in the area.
