President Obama will travel to Connecticut on October 23rd to attend an evening fundraiser for Senator Chris Dodd.

The senior senator from Connecticut, who is up for re-election next year, has been lagging in early polls as a result of scandals surrounding his participation in a questionable mortgage program run by collapsed mortgage lender Countrywide.
