Newtown Mom Will Deliver Presidential Weekly Address
President Obama is turning the microphone over to Francine Wheeler whose son, Ben, was killed during the Newtown tragedy. She will give this week’s Saturday address.
Obama brought families of the Newtown victims to Washington on Air Force One on Monday, and they have been meeting with senators to urge them to support new laws that, among other measures, would require more background checks for gun sales.
“He believes their voices and resolve have been critical to the continued progress we’ve seen in the Senate,” Carney said.
