President Barack Obama to visit Texas next Tuesday.
The president will combine Democratic fundraising events in Austin with a presidential visit in El Paso during the one-day visit to the state.
Officials didn't say why the president was stopping in El Paso, but in a report in the Houston Chronicle, the paper guesses it's most likely related to one of three things: Fort Bliss, the U.S.-Mexico border or the West Texas wildfires.
Earlier in the week, the president rejected Gov. Rick Perry's request to declare Texas a major disaster area after wildfires burned 2.2 million acres. Perry has been critical of Washington dolling out funds to Alabama following last week's deadly tornadoes, but not giving Texas a major disaster declaration -- and accompanying relief funds.
Following the fundraising event in Austin, the president will return to Washington D.C. that night.
