    Obama makes quick stop in Leesburg

    President Barack Obama, in the first month of his second term, made a swing through Loudoun County Thursday to address the House of Representatives Democratic Caucus during their retreat at the local Lansdowne Resort.

    The president was set to arrive in Leesburg at 12:30 p.m. and depart at 1:55 p.m. from Leesburg Executive Airport.

    House and Senate Democrats – as well as House and Senate Republicans -- hold annual retreats at the start of each year to discuss policy positions and their platforms.

    Obama held closed-door discussions with Senate Democrats in Maryland Wednesday, according to the Associated Press, which reported that the president is making the visits to promote his second-term agenda and keep the party unified.

    The AP reported Obama will focus on policies that ensure a “fair playing field” for every American to prosper.

    President Bill Clinton is expected to address the Democrats in Lansdowne Friday.
