President Barack Obama will travel to Maine on April 1 to hold a town hall event designed to explain the impact of the new healthcare reform law.

Even though the law passed this week, Democrats are expected to continue to tout the benefits of the bill as the midterm elections approach.

Obama will hold the event in the Portland, Maine area but more details about the appearance have yet to be released.

The next day, the president is scheduled to speak about the economy in North Carolina.
