    President Barack Obama will visit Texas on Friday.

    President Barack Obama jets to Houston on Friday for a pair of campaign fundraising events.

    The president is scheduled to arrive at Minute Maid Park around the dinner hour for a fundraising banquet. About 600 people are expected to attend the $500-a-ticket event.

    The president then heads to a private residence for a more intimate dinner at which about 70 people are expected to attend at a cost of $35,800 per ticket.

    The president will depart Houston afterward.
