++ CARNEY REAX TO COBURN LETTER: THIS IS NOT A TOUR
14:05:49 This is not a tour. This is federal officials in those states and cities working with governors and local officials to highlight important actions that the administration and the government is taking. Occasionally White House officials will participate but this is not a tour as described for public relations reasons by critics.
