President Barack Obama has postponed travel to fundraisers in New Jersey and Connecticut amid the latest Ebola virus developments in the United States.
The announcement came after a second health care worker in Dallas tested positive for Ebola.
Obama had been scheduled to attend an event Wednesday at 5 p.m.in Union, New Jersey, to raise money for Senate Democrats fighting to maintain a Democratic majority. At 8 p.m., he was scheduled to speak in Bridgeport, Connecticut, for a campaign rally for endangered Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy.
Obama instead will meet with members of his cabinet Wednesday afternoon to discuss coordinating the government’s response to the virus.
