MINNEAPOLIS (KFGO-AM) -- President Obama is scheduled to visit Minnesota Thursday.

The White House says the President will be in town to headline a fundraiser for the Democratic party and Obama is expected to talk about the state's recent move to raise the minimum wage, which will increase to $9.50 per hour by 2016.

There's no word on whether Obama will hold any public events, or if he will visit any of the recently flood-damaged areas of the state.

Obama last visited the state in February when announced a national transportation initiative at Union Depot in St. Paul.
