SEATTLE - President Barack Obama plans to stop in Seattle Tuesday to campaign for Sen. Patty Murray.

It will be a short visit on his three-day, five-state tour to support Democrats. Other stops are in Wisconsin, California, Ohio and Florida.

The President is scheduled to land in Seattle at about 11:15 a.m.

He'll then hold a roundtable discussion with small business leaders at the Grand Central Bakery in Pioneer Square.

Commerce Secretary and former Washington Governor Gary Locke is traveling with the president and will take part in the discussion.

Obama is scheduled to make some public remarks shortly after noon. The White House says he'll be talking about strengthening the economy and creating jobs.

Following the roundtable, President Obama will attend two fundraising events for Senator Patty Murray. The first will be a luncheon at the Westin Hotel, followed by a private get together at the home of RealNetworks founder Rob Glaser.

The President will then depart the state some time after 3 p.m. for Columbus, Ohio.
