President Barack Obama is planning a trip to Boston to attend Democratic Party events.
Obama’s Wednesday visit follows a stop at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain to renew his push to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

During his stop in Connecticut, Obama will appear with Democratic Govs. Dannel Malloy of Connecticut, Peter Shumlin of Vermont and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island.

Gov. Deval Patrick will also participate.
