As part of the White House’s continuing effort to build broad-based support for his approach to solving the “fiscal cliff,” President Obama is doing a round of regional press interviews this afternoon, including one with WCCO in the Twin Cities.
Other stations on the president’s schedule today are WPVI in Philadelphia, WSCV Univision in Miami, and KCRA in Sacramento.
The White House has embargoed the interviews from the Diplomatic Room until 4 p.m. Central Time, meaning the tape could roll on the Good Neighbor anytime after that.
