The website Politico reports President Barack Obama is scheduled to be in the resort town on August 29th.
He's expected to be at a fundraising event in Newport for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
The site reports that though the president's approval rating remains rather low, he's still a big draw on the fundraising circuit. As mid-term elections approach, Obama has attended 16 fundraisers this cycle.
Currently, Rhode Island's entire Congressional delegation is Democratic.
UPDATE: The Providence Journal reports the Whitehouse confirms the President's Newport visit.
