RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — When President Barack Obama arrived in Raleigh today, a familiar face was on board Air Force One.
Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-7th District) stepped off the plane with the Commander in Chief. The two men shook hands before heading down the steps to the runway.
McIntyre announced last week he will not seek reelection this year after nine terms in the US House. He joined the president to the Triangle for his visit focused on the economy today despite not supporting presidential initiatives like health care reform.
