White House / WHITE HOUSE

Obama to Hold Press Conference on Wednesday

First extended comments on election results.

President Obama will hold a White House news conference Wednesday at 1 p.m., to give his first extended reaction to the midterm elections and the bad news they are expected to deliver to Democrats.

With control of the House very much threatened, the president is certain to be pressed on what message he has heard from the voters and how he expects to navigate the new political terrain in Washington with Republicans wielding considerably more power.

The press conference comes shortly before the president leaves the country for an extended, four-country tour of Asia, a trip that has White House advisers concerned might leave the domestic stage to the newly triumphant Republicans.

 

As part of the strategy to stay in the news, a White House official said the president plans to give an interview later in the week to CBS’s “Sixty Minutes.”

The president has given fewer press conferences than any of his recent predecessors.
