Obama Cancels Fundraising Trip Amid Latest Ebola News

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.
