WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is launching a two-day campaign fundraising swing in California.
The president will start Wednesday's crusade for cash with two events in San Francisco, followed by a pair of appeals in Los Angeles. Among the evening events is a gala for gay and lesbian supporters where tickets cost up to $25,000 per couple.
Obama will wrap up his California drives in Los Angeles with an event Thursday morning before heading to Nevada. In a speech at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Obama will announce new steps his administration will take to help college students repay their loans.
California has been fertile fundraising territory for the president. He made two trips last month to the Democratic-leaning state to scoop up cash.
