Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel led political sessions for House Democrats on Wednesday afternoon during their Maryland retreat.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said the speech was “so very consistent with all of the messages that we have been working on.”
Obama is scheduled to deliver closed-door remarks to the Caucus Friday before Members return to their districts for the weekend. Vice President Joseph Biden is also slated to appear before the Caucus on Friday.
“We’ll have an interaction with him that I know will be very productive for the American people,” Pelosi told reporters.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
