Obama: Boxer might lose if supporters don't work

LOS ANGELES (AP) President Barack Obama is telling California Democrats that their liberal Sen. Barbara Boxer might lose her re-election race unless they work hard for her campaign.

Obama delivered the stern warning Monday evening in Los Angeles at the first of a trio of fundraisers for Boxer and the Democratic Party.

Boxer is seeking a fourth term and has won big in the past in Democratic-friendly California. But she's facing a more difficult political environment this time around because of the shaky economy.

Obama says that all incumbents are in danger because of the economic environment, though he says it's turning around.

The events are expected to raise as much as $3.5 million for Boxer and the Democratic National Committee.
