On Monday, August, 9, President Barack Obama will travel to Austin and Houston to raise money for candidates in the Democratic Party.
Texas Republicans aren’t exactly planning a nice reception to welcome the President.
A “Hands off Texas” rally will be held at the state capitol in Austin.

According to the release, the rally is designed to send a message that the “President and his party should keep their liberal policies out of our state.”
Republicans are also promoting the idea that President Obama is coming to Texas to support democrats like former Houston Mayor Bill White in his bid to unseat incumbent republican Governor Rick Perry.
White has said he will not attend the fundraiser because of a prior committment.
