Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he plans to meet with President Obama to discuss the influx of women and children at the southwest border. Perry will meet with Obama and local faith and elected leaders in Dallas on Wednesday. Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett invited Perry to the Dallas meeting.
But in other news:
President Obama’s ability to do this might have been tested Tuesday night as he greeted people on a Denver street during a visit there to meet supporters and raise money for Democratic U.S. Senate candidates.
The president shook hands with men, women and, at one point, a man wearing a horse head mask. Obama appeared to chuckle as he spotted the man, who wore a red T-shirt, and wore a quizzical but amused look on his face as he shook hands with the masked man.
In photos captured on the scene, it’s not clear if the man said anything to the president and, if so, what he might have said.
One thing is clear, though, is that the photo went viral as soon as it became public.
