White House confirms Obama’s Montana visit

The Associated Press is reporting that the White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama will be in Bozeman next Friday, Aug. 14.

Officials are still not saying what Obama plans to do in Bozeman, but they did say the first family plans to travel to Yellowstone National Park.

I still don’t know any details of the rumored Friday town hall meeting, so please don’t call me and ask how to get tickets. I’ll post whatever details I find out here on The Lowdown.

However, I will be out of town this weekend, so if the news breaks then you’ll have to find it elsewhere. Sorry.

UPDATE: This just in from the White House:
