Former Republican U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe will headline a June event in Minneapolis, hosted by WomenWinning.
Snowe, a centrist from Maine, retired last year saying: "I do not realistically expect the partisanship of recent years in the Senate to change over the short term."
According to WomenWinning, which helps female candidates who support abortion access, Snowe "will be speaking to the theme 'It Takes Everyone to Make History' while telling her story and speaking to the importance of electing women to government."
After some of the most momentous weeks of his presidency, including court victories on gay marriage and Obamacare and an emotional eulogy for the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, President Barack Obama turned his attention back to an ongoing theme of his presidency: Economic fairness.
While the nation's attention turns to the 2016 presidential race and the ever-growing field of candidates, President Barack Obama will try to drive a message he's been repeating since his first campaign: economic fairness.
