Obama to Visit Texas

By Johnny Shannon and Bill O'Neil

President Barack Obama will be headed for Texas this week--and hos stops will include a memorial service for the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West. 
That service will take place at Baylor University Thursday. San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro said Washington has taken note of just how battered that community is.

"I think the people of West, Texas should know we're here with them" Castro said, adding "As a member of Congress, I know the federal government and Congress will do every single thing it can to make sure disaster relief and other relief is available to them."

The President had previously been scheduled to travel to Texas this week--headlining a Democratic fundraiser in Dallas Wednesday Night. President Obama is also due at a dedication ceremony at former President George W. Bush's library.
